FuckUp Nights, the group that hosts discussions about the lessons learned from business failures, is holding its eighth event in Washington, DC, on November 18 at 7pm at WeWork in Dupont Circle. Click on this link for more details or to register for the event.
As the hosts describe it, “FuckUp Nights is a monthly event where awesome people talk about one of their biggest professional or business failures in a candid and irreverent way.”
I learned all about FuckUp Nights when I dined with stranger Meredith Denbow, who organizes the events in the city. While she took the initiative to get the organization going in the District, she told me that the success of the events is a group achievement. “Surrounding yourself with a good team when you’re trying to pull off something that’s really big is essential,” she said during our meal at Jyoti.
