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.
