Following our passion for storytelling and entrepreneurship we came across an opportunity to start organizing FuckUp Nights in San Francisco. Before, these event series were organized in bars or clubs. Now instead of closed spaces we are doing them online for the whole world to watch!
Failure is a part of any success story, but we don’t talk about it enough. We’ve all been to plenty of events where people tell you how they hacked, hustled, and created their success, but there are very few where someone gets up and says “I totally messed up, and this is what you can learn from it.”
Fuckup Nights is a global speaker series where stories of failed businesses and projects are told, questioned, and celebrated. Each speaker is given 7 minutes and is able to use 10 presentation slides. After each speaker, there’s a Q&A session with the online audience.
We are looking for English speakers to take part in FuckUp Nights USA West Coast!
Since this will be an online event, the speakers can be from all over the world.
The only requirement is to speak English.
This event is in collaboration with FuckUp Nights – West Coast – Cities:
- San Francisco
- Los Angeles
- San Diego
Your story will be heard by entrepreneurs, investors and ordinary people that have nothing better to do.
You can talk about any personal or business failure that thought you a lesson. Share what was it about. What did go wrong? What did you learn from it?
Write or record a short summary of your FuckUp and send it to us by June 27.
The most interesting stories will get chosen to continue at the global event.
