Fuckup Nights Cluj // Vol. 3

Fuckup Nights is a global movement where stories of failed businesses and projects are told, questioned and celebrated.
The first Fuckup Night happened in Mexico City in September 2012. Since then people around the world gather every month to drink beer and listen to three stories about failure. Why we do it? Because the majority of professionals don’t create the “project of the year” in their first attempt. Because one can learn more from stories of failure than from stories of success. Because it’s FUN.
