About this Event

FuckUp Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. Each month, in events across the globe, we get three to four people to get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fuckup. The stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled, we tell them all.

The embarrassment that our mistakes cause us can be enjoyed or suffered in private. But the failure monster feeds off of that loneliness. Closeness is another form of intimacy, and that is what we feel during FuckUp Nights: closeness. A certain warmth when a perfect stranger applauds our errors and our weaknesses.

For all of those that still fear being associated with failure, let me just say: this Global movement of Failures is a Success. Join us for FuckUp Nights, a global celebration of failure that we gather all the rockstar storytellers that are ready to bare their souls and tell you the gory details of their most spectacular failures!

A night that you'll be there to laugh, to embrace the learning of failure, to socialize and network!

Come and join us for the failure stories to inspires!

Her FuckUp Stories!

Yea..so finally I’m about to share my Fuckup Story and take the sting out of the tail. But for quite a long time after working 10+ years in the industry, I’d started feeling maybe I’ll never be rolling out my own venture, and I’m not Entrepreneurial. Having given up my full time and go all in starting my dream business – I went in it so passionately bad that I crashed myself to the hospital emergency.
