People are flocking to ‘F*ckUp Nights’ to discuss bouncing back from failure
FuckUp Nights is a global event hosted in cities around the world such as New York, London, Tel Aviv, Barcelona and Cape Town.
Events follow a standard format.
Each evening features three or four speakers who address the audience for about seven minutes, using 10 images to support the discussion.
Engagement is key.
After each speaker; questions are opened to the floor, followed by a final networking session and drinks.
The friendly get-together stems from the need for sharing the business failures that entrepreneurs overcame and that allowed them to achieve the hard-sought success that eventually followed.
Listen to the interviews in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).
