F*ckUp Night VOL.12
Everyone's favourite night. Nothing like watching accomplished, confident people share their still-raw, professional disasters with a crowd of 250 community members.
Better than crying. Cheaper than therapy.
F*ckUp Nights is a global movement where stories of failed businesses and projects are told, questioned and celebrated. It started in 2012 in Mexico City and we've brought it to Victoria.
3 "f*ckuppers" will have 7 minutes each to tell their story and up to 10 minutes for Q&A. What was the project? What went wrong? What did they learn? What would they do differently?
Please note this event is 19+.

There are FuckUp Night stories that make you say, “Oh no. Please tell me you didn’t do that.” And then there are FuckUp Night stories that make you say that twice. This is one of those stories...
- Samarth Mod
Successful, driven, smart. All true now, but when he was just starting out as an entrepreneur Sam made a series of FuckUps that still sting to this day. He’s not sure he wants to talk about them, but having been in the audience, he knows it will help everyone, including himself.
- Chris Bjerrisgaard
There is always someone to blame. The person who made you do something you didn’t want to do. Someone who caused things to get totally fucked up. Chris thought he knew who that person was. Turns out, he was wrong.
- Jim Hayhurst
Former F*ckUp himself, Jim got addicted to the stage and just can't let go of the mic. Seriously, we don't even pay him, he just shows up every time...
