First Ever Fuckup Night to be Held in Zagreb – Guests to Talk Business Failings

CroatiaImpact Hub Zagreb is bringing to you the very first Fuckup Nights in the Balkans taking place on September 11th at 7.30pm…

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.
It is all made possible thanks to their fellow fuckupers from Mexico City, Mumbai, San Sebastian, Medellin, San Francisco, Paris, Melbourne, Stockholm, Culiacán, Monterrey, Tijuana, Guadalajara, Oaxaca, and many more.
