Tired of only hearing success stories? Seen too many successful people? Baffled by their lives and accolades? One might wonder- Is everyone only succeeding without any adversary? Does anyone ever fail? Yes, of course! Everybody fails, everybody makes mistakes but no one talks about them, they only talk about their success. Then "Fuckup Night" might be the fresh voice you need.
"Fuckup Nights" is an event, where startups and entrepreneurs gather, to discuss how they messed up and made mistakes in their careers.
The first "FuckUp Night" happened in Mexico City in 2012. The concept came out of a talk between five friends who were convinced that the stigma surrounding “failure” should be removed. Since then people from all around the world gather every month to listen to three entrepreneurial stories about failure.
But wait, shouldn’t we focus on the positives and the bravados?
Not necessarily! This event focuses solely on the negative in order to teach the positive. It is important to make mistakes, or else how will we ever learn? Sharing these embarrassing downfall stories lets people know it’s perfectly okay to fail, they are not alone and failure is not the end.
"Fuckup Nights" (FUN) Dhaka started their journey on 28th May 2016 with three talented entrepreneurs, who spoke willingly about their downfalls. The concept encouraged many people to be a part of FUN Dhaka community. Another one is coming
