We are told time and time again that failure is something to fear and avoid at all costs – but what if we embraced it? Michele Romanow, Co-Founder of Clearbanc and host of the new Audible Original Podcast “The Revisionaries”, believes failure is a by-product of success.
Michele Romanow is a Canadian tech entrepreneur, television personality and venture capitalist. In 2015 she co-founded Clearbanc, provider of revenue sharing solutions to help fund small businesses headquartered in Toronto. She is currently the Director of Vail Resorts and Freshii, the international restaurant franchise.
Michele was the only Canadian on the Forbes Top 20 Most Disruptive “Millenials on a Mission” list in 2013, made the list of the 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada in 2015, and received the Canadian Innovation Awards’ Angel Investor of the Year in 2018. She has been a cast member on the CBC’s Dragons’ Den since Season 10. She was also an award presenter during this year’s Startup Canada’s regional Canadian Export Challenge tour.
Most recently, Michele has partnered with audible.ca for the Audible Original Podcast ‘The Revisionaries” where she sits down with today’s leading business innovators and entrepreneurs to reveal the early pitfalls and landmines they encountered on their journeys to become visionaries.
“Failure is a by-product of success. It’s not failure for the sake of not doing well, it’s learning from every experiment you try.”
On this week’s THRIVE Podcast, sponsored by the Business Development Bank of Canada and Scotiabank, Michele discusses the importance of embracing failure in the entrepreneurial community and her new Audible Original Podcast “The Revisionaries”.
