Fuckup Nights Volume 2 is brought to you by:
Fuckup Nights Perth foundation sponsor is:
Why Fuckup Nights? Because with #peakstartup, a 90% failure rate, and all the talk of motivation and positivity, there’s something missing.. talking about failure, and learning from sharing stories of failure! Free your failures, Perth will thank you!
HOW IS IT DONE?
In every Fuckup Night 3 speakers tell their failure story explaining:
What was the project?
What went wrong?
What did they learn?
What would they do differently?
Each speaker tells their story in 10 images (40 seconds per image, ~6mins total) followed by Q&A.
At the end of the speakers’ stories, attendees are welcome to stick around and network over drinks.
Previous Fuckup Night speakers have varied from social entrepreneurs, tech founders, and even a doctor who a few years ago opened an adult shop that went broke.
Just so you get an idea, Fuckup Nights is something between a party and a casual business conference :)
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
If you're a successful business owner or entrepreneur who has:
1) Failed, misjudged, fallen off a cliff or lost and been badly bruised on the career/professional path
2) Created a business success story on some level as a consequence of the learnings from aforementioned fuck up
