FuckUp Nights - Singapore #17
There's a lot of press around success, and not enough for all the frustrating, confusing, chaotic, hilarious moments in-between.
Fuckup Nights is a global movement to share business failure stories in a candid way -- to destigmatise and explore the tough moments, to create a more solid foundation for innovation.
3-4 entrepreneurs share their stories of failures -- each speaker shares their story with just 10 images.
Then, you ask them questions: ask anything you’re curious about, that would add value to your night. Don’t hold back! The speaker will decide whether or not to answer.
You bring yourself. We bring the cool vibe, drinks, music, and kickass speakers. We unite at 7pm, break for mingling at 840pm, and reunite every other month.
