    During a week that explores great ideas, join us as we celebrate all of the not-so-good ones that helped us along the way. Hear from some of your favorite comedians, writers, chefs, CEOs, and other leaders about the ideas you don’t normally find on the Chicago Ideas stage—the ones they consider failures—at this party at The Den Theatre. Along with the official technology partner of Chicago Ideas, Table XI we’ll take an entertaining look at lessons learned the hard way and how the ability to embrace your mistakes can be key to learning and innovation. Whatever your failures, you’ll walk away ready to celebrate them boldly and build on them during Chicago Ideas Week and beyond.
