What is Fuckup Nights (FUN)?


Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. We do it regularly, in some cases even each month, in events across the globe, when we invite three to four people to get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fuckups. And to tell the audience how they rejoined the big game. These are stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled.

Most of the stories have a happy end, but most importantly, all are valuable life lessons. And we tell each and every one of them.
