Fuckup Nights is a global movement that helps people break free from the paradigms that limit their lives. Every month we organize events around the world where speakers share the stories behind their professional fuckups, using failure to encourage difficult, vulnerable, and meaningful conversations.

The stories of failed business, commercial relationships that ended sour, the products that had to be removed from the market. We tell everything without filters.
