The multiple failures of Fuckup Nights

Pepe Villatoro, co-founder and CEO of Fuckup Nights shares the multiple failures that led to the incorporation of Fuckup Inc. Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. Each month, in events across the globe, we get three to four people to get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fuckup. The story of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled.
