Successful entrepreneurs talk about their toughest failures.

On the evening of 27 October we will end the first day of ruhrSUMMIT with a spectacular FuckUp Night! Via live stream from the Jahrhunderthalle in Bochum, four successful entrepreneurs will talk about their biggest fuckups on the long road to success in exciting 10-minute presentations. After each lecture, questions can be asked via chat function, followed by direct answers from the corresponding speaker. The purpose is to cultivate the fear of failure in the process of establishing a new business.
Get to know inspiring personalities and be moved by their stories.

In 2019, around 800 participants visited the FuckUp Night Ruhr Area, which took place as part of ruhrSUMMIT, and we will be following up digitally in 2020.

  • Interactive exchange with the speakers directly after each lecture through question and answer sessions
"The FUN is an experience and an enrichment every time. I learn from other entrepreneurs that failure is not the end, it' mostly the beginning of something new.

"I come to FUN because it's simply inspiring to hear how people get back up after failure. The stories of the speakers show me that you should hold on to your own vision, even if there are obstacles on the way".
