What the fuck?
Fuckup Nights is a global movement that aims to accelerate the learning process while reaching people closer to actual cases of business failure. Since its inception in Mexico City, in each FuckUp Night three entrepreneurs present their failures using 10 images and 7 minutes. Since September 2012, hundreds of fuckupreneurs have told their stories of failure to thousands of attendees in more than 10 countries.
This is possible thanks to our fellow fuckupers from Mexico City, Mumbai, San Sebastian,
Medellin, San Francisco, Paris, Melbourne, Stockholm, Culiacán, Monterrey, Tijuana, Guadalajara, Oaxaca, and many more.
Impact Hub Zagreb is adding Zagreb to the list and our first fuckupreneurs to speak are:
