The Event

Get inspired by local entrepreneurs!

Fuckup Nights is a global movement born in Mexico in 2012 to share 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 Q&A session, after that, we drink beer!

Doors open at 18h00 and the event STARTS at 18h30... SHARP.
