What is a Fuckupper?
A Fuckupper is a local Fuckup Nights representative responsible for organizing events and growing the community in their city.
How much of a commitment do I need to make?
We ask every Fuckupper to commit to at least one year and at least one event every 3 months. If you want to organize more than 4 events per year, we’ll be thrilled to know you’re fostering such an active community!
Who can be a Fuckupper?
Any individual -or team- who is profoundly motivated to make a positive impact on people by leading a community that works towards smashing the stigma of failure in their city.
What type of events can I organize with this membership?
The events must be stand-alone (not organized as part of another event, conference, festival, etc) and open to the public.
How can I become a Fuckupper?
You need to follow our application process.
You’re already on the right path!
Can my company/agency/co-working become Fuckuppers?
At Fuckup Nights we only grant memberships to individuals. But no worries, your company can be part of it by sponsoring the license cost and/or providing a venue, for instance.
Can I monetize local Fuckup Night events?
Yes, you can! This shouldn’t be your main motivation, though. You can charge for the entrance, sell merch, and/or seek sponsorships to cover costs and compensate yourself/your team for all the hard work.
One thing we do ask is that you keep all prices accessible. Fuckup Nights is about inclusivity and accessibility, not exclusivity.
There’s already a Fuckup Nights chapter in my city, can I become a Fuckupper too?
We grant exclusivity to one Fuckupper per city, if you’re really interested in getting involved please send an email introducing yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org so we’ll put you in touch with the current local Fuckupper in your city.
1. Brand licensing of an internationally recognized registered trademark.
