FUCKUP NIGHTS

The Kijiji

Fuckup Nights Nairobi is part of a global event series that shares stories of professional failure.

Each month, in events across the globe, three to four people get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fuckup.

The stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled; at Fuckup Nights it all comes out in the open.

Falling flat on your face is typically viewed negatively and kept private.

In African culture, we talk more about our successes and very little about the lessons that we learnt to get us there.

And that is what we want to change.

Fuckup Nights are intended to create a culture shift around failure and enable a mindset of innovation and mental wellbeing. We will take the sting, shame and guilt out of failure, share stories in a supportive environment, and go home feeling a bit better about ourselves.

The events follow a specific format: four entrepreneurs present their failures for seven minutes using up to 10 images. Each presentation is followed by a question-and-answer session and networking.

The aim of the event is to share stories in a supportive environment, workshop the experiences and figure out the lessons learnt.

Would you like to tell your failure story at Fuckup Nights, or nominate someone whose story you’d like to hear? Get in touch with us below.

You can also join the event as an MC if you feel passionate about the human part of professional development and innovation.  A Fuckup Night event can also be exclusively dedicated and curated to your sector, company or conference.

To learn more about Fuckup Nights, you can watch Evaline Momanyi’s vlog.
