Tampa-St. Pete entrepreneurs get 6 lessons celebrating failure from a start-up veteran


    Entrepreneurial success is celebrated in the press, but according to startup strategist and entrepreneur coach Adrian France, entrepreneurship is really more like a dumpster fire.

    “Everyone fails, but no one talks about it,” France told about 100 entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial hopefuls at an International Women’s Day power breakfast at Station House in St. Petersburg Friday.

    France co-founded social content platform Odyssey Media Group, and helped grow it into a company with more than 100 employees and $45 million in venture capital funding before leaving the company about two years ago.
