FUNDXB Co-Working Roadshow 2019
If you're bored of glossy events waxing lyrical about success stories from goody-two-shoes, FUNDXB is bringing you a 10 venue coworking space roadshow, which features 3 speakers who well, fucked up, and are happy to tell you how they overcame heartaches, depression and near-dissolved business partnerships in a raw uncensored manner. Each episode showcases 3 speakers from the coworking venue that we are visiting. The speakers bare all and will take tough questions from the audience after their sharing session.
Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. Each month, in events across the globe, we get three to four people to get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fuckup. The stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled, we tell them all.
There are many reasons why you could organize an event or a series of FUN:
It promotes an acceptance of failure and celebrates trying
It generates a culture of inclusion and transparency
Eliminates the feeling of hierarchy
Facilitates bottom-up innovation
Energizes the culture of the company
It helps you prevent losses by finding early stage mistakes
In every FUN event each speaker tells their story:
What was the project?
What went wrong?
What did they learn?
What would they do differently?
The speakers can be quite varied: artists, architects, technology, green and social entrepreneurs, and even a doctor who a few years ago opened a shop that went broke.
Each of them tells their story in 10 images (each projected for 40 seconds) then there is a Q&A session, and at the end of the speaker's stories, we open a space for networking among attendees.
