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?

3-4 speakers (from a variety of industries) share their failure story in 7 minutes using a maximum of 10 slides. Then it’s over to you! Ask anything you’re curious about; all accompanied by a tonne of networking and beer! You bring yourself. We bring the cool vibes, drinks, music and kickass speakers.
