Fuckup Nights is a global movement (200+ cities, 65 countries) focusing on how failure can transform into radical solutions that help people make better decisions and challenge the status quo. At our events in Raleigh, speakers share their never-before-heard stories of professional fuckups to encourage vulnerability, authenticity, and empathy to attendees, all while raising support for local non-profits. Fuckup Nights Raleigh Vol. 3 will continue sparking Raleigh's community of Fuckuppers to see there are many just like them.

Fuckupper Wanted

Fuckup Nights is a global movement and series of events where stories of failure are shared. Each month, at 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, partner deals that fall out, products that have to be recalled, we tell it all.
