WHAT IS FUCKUP NIGHTS?

We Live Life Without Filters By Sharing Stories Of  Failure

Fuckup Nights is a global series of events where we share business failure stories. Each month, at our events around the world, we get three or four people to face a room full of strangers to share their own fuckup. Stories of businesses that go bust, partnership deals that fall apart, products that have to be recalled - we tell it all!

I want to be a Fuckupper
FUN

Pleasantly surprised by the interaction and the good response from our audience. I loved the intro. I did not know the preparation process and I thought it was great that there was that previous work with the speakers.

FUN is a school of life

"On every Fuckup Night we keep surprising ourselves with all the lessons we get from the speakers! Sometimes among laughter, other times with tears in our eyes, for each Fuckupper it’s been an opportunity to reflect on their own mistakes, failures, or falls, and for each one of the attendees, it becomes an opportunity to learn from them. Fuckup Nights Caracas is a school of life for everyone and especially for those of us who are entrepreneurs!"

It has allowed me to meet fantastic people

"Being a Fuckupper has allowed me not only to meet fantastic people talking about their mistakes, but to deconstruct in me the paradigm of failure, because at the end of the day to promote this movement you have to believe it, it's a process, a continuous cycle that insists on taking you out of orbit, while the system asks you to come back. Breaking with that status quo that limits you is transformative and liberating".

Be brave and show your vulnerability

From events in real settings to online events and back to physical events. I started my FUN journey in 2018 as a guest of Fuckup Nights Alborg in Denmark. I've always been an extrovert and wanted to get on that stage. So I decided to look for a local alternative here in Hamburg - Germany. No events planned, no person to contact, so I'll do it! I started the Hamburg chapter of Fuckup Nights in Hamburg in 2019 and our first event sold out in 3 days. That showed me, "Damn Robert, there is a need for this kind of events!"

Organizing FUN Oradea is liberating

"My name is Violeta and I am the organizer of Fuckup Nights Oradea in Romania ✌️. I joined the FUN family in December 2018 with events organized since February 2019. It seems like it's been a long time since then, but then I realize it was one of the best decisions I ever made. Now, after 6 offline editions before March 2020 and 3 national online editions with my peers from all over the country during the pandemic, I can say that for me organizing Fuckup Nights Oradea is liberating and a lot of fun 🤩 Speakers enjoy their talks and participants enjoy the show.

"The fact that leaders of our organization share failures openly, showing themselves vulnerable, is the most valued. It builds trust and lets us see that tackling challenges always brings a good result."

FUN is an incomparable event

FUN is an unparalleled event to bring to your city. People from the audience coming up to you after an event to personally thank you for making it happen is something I haven't experienced in over 10 years of event management. FuckupNights is about authenticity, talking about feelings and showing them openly. This is where the movement happens.

Mistakes are always worth sharing

"I helped organize Fuck Up Nights in Valais, Switzerland, for the past year. What I have the most fun is introducing people to them. First they are surprised by the language and then intrigued by the concept. Fuck Up Nights is fun to put in their place! Meeting people from diverse backgrounds with a common desire to share their stories is part of the process and is very inspiring. It's always worth sharing mistakes big or small, if not to relate, to help people see what's beyond the dark side. We really enjoy every minute of it and continue to learn from our last minute mistakes 😊"

Memorable stories and lessons

"Fuckup Nights masterfully combines people with a framework for discussing failure that inevitably produces remarkable nights filled with memorable stories and lessons learned. The motto "failure sucks, but instructs" is something we take seriously at Fuckup Nights, and we strive to make sure everyone goes home just a little bit smarter and ready for tomorrow."

It was amazing! It had a lot of positive feedback. The Board had a great time and they stayed until late for networking, which shows how unique the atmosphere was. I cannot thank you enough.

I never imagined that our internal speakers would tell something so personal and inspiring. They have achieved an incredible change in the way they have presented their stories. The storytelling was incredible. It was playful but at the same time disruptive, they were not seen as managers but as storytellers.

Fuckup nights has been a catapult

"Fuckup Nights has been a catapult for us toward our market. Our first event was a total success and we didn't make a big effort to sell all of the tickets. People had fun, our guests felt very comfortable and it was a night that marked our presence as a brand. It’s undoubtedly a powerful tool for those seeking a market and positioning."

FUN Zadar has been a success

Fuckup Nights in Zadar has been really successful and managed to bring together different groups of people on different occasions, but with a common goal. That goal was to share stories that could show how failure is nothing to be ashamed of and encourage others to dive into the process of doing so, without fear of the barriers that might appear along the way. In the Zadar community, stepping out of the box is not a common thing, so the Fuckup Nights initiative had an even greater impact with this in mind.
