FuckUp Nights 2014

In 2012 a few friends and really nice people from Mexico City started to organize events called FuckUp Nights. Basically, people share their stories about failure. Very honest stories. Very valuable stories. Because, you learn more from mistakes. And mistakes are part of business. Yes, important to develop experience. But more than that, mistakes prove the courage someone got to try new things.

For the last two years FuckUp Nights have been evolving in many cities around the globe. But this year probably has been the year of FuckUp Nights. Also, here in Germany are now many cities involved. After kicking-off FuckUp Nights Düsseldorf in April. Which was great fun to organize and being part of. Kick-ass!
