Fuckup Nights is a global movement where stories of failed businesses, projects, and careers are told, questioned, and celebrated. In events across the globe, business owners, entrepreneurs, and leaders get on stage to acknowledge their work-fuckup in a room full of strangers (ish since this is Pgh with 1 degree of separation).

The first event happened in Mexico City in September 2012 after five friends felt the need to break free from the stigmas of failure during a mezcal-infused conversation.

Today, Fuckup Nights has expanded to more than 300 cities and 90 countries across the globe where lessons are shared and heard!

In a world of obstacles and posturing, Fuckup Nights Pittsburgh plans to change the stigma around failure and inspire our brilliant innovative community as we come together and highlight entrepreneurial journeys from some of our very own change-makers.

Hear from Pittsburgh's top entrepreneurs, CEOs, and leaders as they share their stories of a time when a business deal went sour, a product got recalled, or life took a turn for the worse. Join our Fuckup Nights Pittsburgh community for our FIFTH event on February 2nd at 6 pm for drinks, food, laughs and some fucked up FAILURES!
