Fuckup Nights Moscow

December 14, 2016, 20:00

"Can't act. Can't sing. Bald. Dances a little" - decided the judges after his first audition. This is how the career of Fred Aster began. This great actor and dancer was destined to fall, then to rise up and change the history of cinema.

History is replete with ups and downs examples. Marilyn Monroe, Steven Spielberg, Henry Ford, J. K. Rowling, Stephen King, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey – all people make mistakes or have breakdowns. But in our society, focused on success, it isn't accepted to talk about mistakes. However, mistakes have huge potential and are capable to teach us more than success. And the founders of Fuckup Nights understood that.

History and format

Global movement born in Mexico in 2012 to share publicly business failure stories. Hundreds of people attend each event to hear three to four entrepreneurs share their failures. Each speaker is given 7 minutes and is able to use 10 images. After each speaker, there’s a question/answer session, as well as time for networking (beers).

Fuckup Nights Moscow

Each Fuckup Nights Moscow event represents 4 stories of successful people which had failures in their previous business. Businessmen, senior managers, architects, designers jokingly talk about their failures. How to have a $ 2 million debts and stay alive? How to build up a clinic on the edge of the world? What's it like to open a catering business in Siberia? And how to fail a mobile application start-up?

Speakers of the coming Fickup Night:

  • Alina Tyurina: "Why my mother-in-law had the most beautiful underwear"
  • Darya Semyakova: "Zbyshek Kviz. A cooperation with a large brand - how not to overdo because of joy";
  • Mike Gibson: "Explosive hipster lemonade"
  • Dmitry Sokur: "Tricky bread"
