Fuckup Nights NYC | Fidi - Vol. 2


Fuckup Nights is a speaking event series by and for the startup community. Each event, we host successful entrepreneurs to share their stories of failure. For every story of failure, our speakers recount their emotional journey, how they failed, and the lessons they learned.

This edition of Fuckup Nights NYC:


Our Speaker Lineup:

Jeff Namnum

Jeff Namnum is a partner at touchlab, the Android-first design & development shop (don't ask about doppl, our shiny new cross-platform IP... it's a secret). He's organized multiple conferences on technology, marketing & social media, speaks frequently & advises startups & entrepreneurs. Jeff also loves long walks in the rain & is allergic to bullshit.

Crista Samaras

A graduate of Princeton University, Crista played on the US Women's Lacrosse Team, competing in both the 2001 and 2005 World Cup Games. She started her lacrosse companies, which focused on empowering female players in 2004 and sld them in 2014. Her work with these players convinced her of the need for bravery. Her new venture, BRAVE Enterprises, designs action-oriented programming to help groups, firms and individuals retrain their response to fear.

Paul Klebanov

Paul Klebanov is a marketing educator and sought-after speaker. He takes away the mystery of marketing and replace it with knowledge; those little “a-ha!” moments that gift audiences with crystal-clear clarity. How was he able to do that? He is one of the youngest Americans to build a leading ecommerce retailer - PPL Stores LLC. His goal was to make $1 million in revenue before 30… He actually made $3.1 million by 27. And then he lost it all.

The knowledge gained from years of hardship and experience coupled with his burning desire to get it all back developed into a range of online business specializations and battle-tested digital marketing strategies.

Attendees enjoy local beer, wine, food and snacks at our hosting WeWork locations. You will have the opportunity to meet presenters, ask questions, network and share your own fail story in a supportive and collaborative environment.

See you there!
