Sharing stories about
professional failure

A global movement
& event series ⚡️

Join the Ottawa chapter and meet incredible locals and partners that are helping us reduce the stigma of failure in business.

Each event, a handful of brave souls get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their professional fuckup. The stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled, we tell them all.

Upcoming events

Thursday, October 3rd @ 6PM  –  Get tickets

We learn more from
failure than success.

We believe in supporting our community

That’s why 100% of FUNOttawa proceeds go to supporting our friends at Shepherds of Good Hope.
