FuckUp Nights is the fastest growing, global movement of entrepreneurs coming together to tell, discuss and learn from stories of personal and business failure.

As my mother would tell me growing up, "Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors", you can arguably learn more from failure than someone's success. Now in 192+ cities and 67+ countries worldwide, we’re excited for you to join our community at the fourth FuckUp Nights NYC in Brooklyn!

Speakers will share their story, including the project/business, what they did wrong – the FAIL – and what they learned.

Attendees will enjoy local beer, wine, mixed drinks, food and snacks at the WeWork Honesty Shop in the gorgeous WeWork DUMBO building in Dumbo Heights. You will have the opportunity to talk with presenters, ask questions, network and share your own fail story in a supportive and collaborative environment.

See you there!
