FuckUp Nights: Conversations about failures and other things

LESSONS FROM ENTREPRENEURS WHO’VE FAILED AND SURVIVED

FuckUp Nights is a global movement where stories of failed businesses and projects are told, questioned and celebrated!In each FuckUp Night 3 or 4 fuckupreneurs share their stories of failure including:

  • What was their project?
  • What did they do wrong?
  • What did they learn?
  • What would they do differently?

At the end of each story the audience asks questions. All accompanied by beer and good friends.
