• FuckUp Nights July at StartWest- Stories about Failure


    Welcome to FuckUp Nights Melbourne! We return for July as part of the #StartWest Festival- a day dedicated to entrepreneurs in Melbourne's West. This event is at the AMAZING Newport Substation- we can't wait! Free Tickets HERE: https://funstartwest.eventbrite.com At FuckUp Nights Melbourne, we have grown a huge community of people attending our events in Melbourne as they listen to amazing stories of personal, business and project failure and the wisdom and resilience learned from such experiences. FuckUp Nights is a global movement born in Mexico in 2012 to share public business failure stories with hundreds of people attending each event around the world. Each month speakers will be invited to talk about their FuckUp stories; we’ll learn about their biggest mistakes, what they learned, how they moved on- all whilst sharing invaluable advice along the way. The speakers will candidly share in 7-10 minutes: * What their project / business was * What went wrong / How it affected their personal life / What they learned / What they would do differently.
