Fuckup Nights is a global movement to share business failure stories in a candid, irreverent way and was born in Mexico in 2012. It’s grown a hundred fold since.And now for the first time ever, Fuckup Nights is in Singapore!
The Game Plan: You bring yourself. We bring the cool vibe and drinks. 3-4 entrepreneurs share their failures — each speaker gets 6:40, for 10 images or 40 seconds each. You ask them questions. We unite at 7pm, say goodbye at 9pm, and reunite every other month.
The speakers sharing their candid stories:
