What is FuckUp Nights?

We are a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure.

Each month, in events across the globe, we get three to four people to get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own 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.

The why

We learn more from failure than success. We know all too well the stigma around failure, as well as how little people actually talk about it. We say fuck that – let’s talk about our failures and celebrate the lessons.

We believe in supporting our community

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