Where stories of failed businesses are told, questioned, and celebrated: it’s about learning from other’s mistakes.
Are you sick and tired of all those shiny success stories? Join us and embrace the biggest FuckUps during the Week of the Circular Economy!
Entrepreneurship goes along with trial and error. Most successful entrepreneurs have seen the downside of changing the world – and now they want to share their story with us. To enable them to do so, BlueCity has teamed up with Versnellingshuis and its partners to put more Dutch circular fuckups in the spotlight. For one (online) afternoon we forget about all those (let’s be honest: very boring) success stories and celebrate fuckups!
What to expect
FuckUp Nights is where stories of failed businesses are told, questioned, and celebrated: it’s about learning from other’s mistakes. The story of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled, we have it all. Entrepreneurship goes along with trial and error, so join us to hear honest stories about people who’ve been there – and done that. Speakers are usually entrepreneurs, designers, managers or… every now and then we invite a regular person (yes, normal people fuck up too)!
The format is simple: three speakers get exactly 8 minutes each to present their mother of all fuckups. After every talk you can ask your questions online.
Due to the COVID-19 measurements, this edition of FuckUp Nights Rotterdam will take place online in the form of a livestream. You can stream the show via YouTube or Facebook.
