What are FuckUp Nights?

FuckUp Nights is a global movement where stories of failed businesses and projects are shared, questioned and celebrated. The first FuckUp Night happened in Mexico City in September 2012. Since then it has been replicated in 200 + cities in 40 + countries, converting us into the Wold’s largest and most active innovators and entrepreneurial movement.

How is it done?

In every FuckUp Night 3-4 speakers share their failure story. The speakers can be quite varied; artist, architects, tech, social entrepreneurs, and even a doctor, who few years ago opened a sex show that went broke. Each speaker tells their story in 7 minutes using 10 images, followed by Q&A, all accompanied by beer, good friends and networking.

The FuckUp Night is an open and direct talk about the challenges of entrepreneurship. Until now there was no place to share stories and learn from failures. I love the initiative, I find extremely useful and relevant.
