FuckUp Nights - Singapore #17

Fuckup Nights Singapore is back for ROUND 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.

Event Details
Date: August 23rd 2017, Wednesday
Time: 7:00PM
Venue: Impact HUB Singapore, 128 Prinsep Street, #01-01, Singapore 188655
Tickets: This is a FREE event but we would like to ask for contributions for our license renewal. No obligations of course. :)

(3) Conrad Alvin Lim: Derivatives Trader, Finance Educator, Best Selling Author, Founder/Creator - Pattern Trader Tutorial and Tools, Founding Director - FinancialScents Pte Ltd

The Format

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.

P.S.: We are currently reaching the end of our license for this chapter. While this event is free to attend, a kind donation for this round will help in the renewal of the license and costs of running this community for the next year.
