Three Entrepreneurs, seven minutes, 10 images, one failure each, once a month.
Fuckup Nights is a global movement born in Mexico in 2012 to publicly share business failure stories. Hundreds of people attend each event to hear three to four entrepreneurs share their failures. Each speaker is given seven minutes and is able to use ten images. After each speaker, there is a Q&A session, as well as time for networking.
Each evening brings to one space people who failed and are not afraid to talk about it and people who are interested in learning from others failures. Each of the speakers had a different path and a different way of looking at his or her story. The entrepreneurs stand in front of their audience with no boundaries and talk about the lowest moments in their career. The speakers are from different disciplines: Hi-tech, artists, social projects, start-ups and more.
You can find Fuckup nights all around the world in over 100 cities from more than 35 countries.
"In the Israeli entrepreneurial environment and the Tel Aviv eco-system our goal is to encourage a culture of dialogue about the failure-learning-success process, in order to create a community in which you will be able to learn from others mistakes. We keep hearing success stories and not enough failure stories that build us up on our way to success," said Leora Golomb, FUN Tel Aviv director. "Our meetings allow entrepreneurs to talk with businessmen, politicians and intellectuals at the eye level, to ask questions and hear about their failures. We make sure to bring speakers from different content backgrounds."
