Just when you thought Beirut has gotten saturated with all kinds of events, talks, panels, and conferences on entrepreneurship and startup culture, FuckUp Nights has arrived to Lebanon to bring you the other side of wonderful stories you’ve heard.

We’re gathering the entrepreneurs we have come to know and adore from the Lebanese ecosystem and listening to the stories that usually go untold. Surely they didn’t wake up one day and it all got awesome. What are the stories they were once embarrassed to share? What were there biggest screw-ups? And hey, how did it turn out okay after all?

All this and more to be shared over a casual atmosphere of laughter, drinks, and networking in FuckUp Nights Beirut, piloting on September 17th, 2015.

What are FuckUp Nights Beirut? | FuckUp Nights is a global movement where stories of failed businesses and projects are told, questioned and celebrated. The first FuckUp Night happened in Mexico City in September 2012. Since then FuckUppers around the world gather every month to drink beer and listen to three stories about failure. In its 3rd year, we are happy to have Beirut added to the FuckUp Nights global movement.

When is FuckUp Night Beirut? | FuckUp Night happens on the second Thursday of every month. The event is usually an afternoon casual event and lasts about 2 to 3 hours. The venue may change, but it’s always the same welcoming ambient atmosphere.

How can I gt involved with FuckUp Nights Beirut? | Although we embrace a culture of FuckUps to learn and share with one another, we really would love if you’d help us not fuckup this one. We’re looking for videographers, photographers journalists and bloggers. Also, if you have a FuckUp story you just gotta share, for any speakers, media, or partnerships, please contact us on: [email protected]
