PhilaU Commencement speaker Steve Blank highlighted in New York Times

The remarks of Commencement speaker Steve Blank were featured in a Sunday, June 12 New York Times article, “Words of Wisdom,” highlighting some of this year’s memorable commencement addresses.  Blank talked about raising tens of millions of dollars for his seventh start-up, a video game company, only to see it fail.  “All of you will fail at some time in your career, or in love or in life,” he told PhilaU graduates.  “No one ever sets out to fail.  But being afraid to fail means you’ll be afraid to try.”
