F*ckUp Night VOL.14

5:00pm - 8:00pm PDT

F*ckUp Night VOL.14

Sponsored by: the Roy Group
Brought to you by: VIATEC

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 is now found in 86 countries, totalling 318 cities. Locals Jim Hayhurst and Ian Chisholm brought the idea to VIATEC, and together we brought the first volume to Victoria in 2015. 12 F*ckUps and 43 speakers later, the event continues to sell out!


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? 

Due to the vulnerability of each speaker and the sometimes sensitive material, video recording/streaming is not permitted at this event. Each speaker receives a recording of their own presentation and it is up to them if they would like to share it post-event.

Ticket Prices:

  • VIATEC Members: $10 (Pre-sale on Jan 29 - Feb 4!)
  • Non-Members: $30

Please note this event is 19+.

THANK YOU to our long standing Event Sponsor:







We are always looking for future prospects to share their stories with our community. Pop us over a quick note to tectoria@viatec.ca if you think you have something. You'll meet with one of our committee members to hear about your story, and if they feel there's a story to be told, you'll get to be a part of the curation sessions where we help you in putting your story together! It's an exhilarating experience, almost like therapy... but much more fun. Afterwards you will be a part of an elite group of F*ckUp alumni!

Please note:

VIATEC will have a photographer in attendance at the event to capture attendees networking and taking in the presentations. Should you wish to not have photos of you on our Flickr page, please contact tectoria@viatec.ca prior to the event.  

No recording of the presentations is permitted.

VIATEC holds the sole City Membership for Greater Victoria through the FuckUp Nights organization. Want more info on the organization and what they offer? Visit fuckupnights.com!
