Fuckup Nights is a global movement present in 90 countries and 300 cities, where stories of professional failure are shared. At each event, 3-4 speakers share their failures, using only 10 images and 7 minutes.
These are events that celebrate failure by trying to get the message across in a fun way and promoting networking.
In this first relaunch event there will be four speakers who will share their stories at Impact Hub Lisbon, showing that failure is nothing more than learning, an opportunity for change, and that it is possible to recover after a “failure”.
