FuckUp Nights Atlanta || Vol. X

FuckUp Nights is one part storytelling, one part comedy, all true stories of professional failure by Atlanta's leaders. Join us November 1st as we hear from icons like Bill Bolling, Danny Shoy, Jim Stacy, and Meg Robinson. Each will share a tale of their professional or personal failure.P.S. There's also beer, wine, and snacks thanks to sponsor WeWork.

What is FuckUp Nights?
Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. Each month, in over 200 cities 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.

Who are the ATL Speakers? (From L to R above)

Bill Bolling - Founder of the Atlanta Community Food Bank and has helped developed many more social good projects in Atlanta.

Danny Shoy - Accomplished nonprofit executive and current President and CEO of the East Lake Foundation.

Jim Stacy - Chef, Emmy-award winning TV Celebrity, punk rocker, and founder of Pallookaville Fine Foods.

Meg Robinson - Executive Director of Georgia Alliance for Progress, former chief of staff and general counsel to Sen. Jason Carter.

How it Works:

Show up for some networking, free beer and finger foods, have some fun, and learn a little something in the process.

Each storyteller will have about 7-ish minutes to share their fail story and the lessons learned. To help add effect (and some drama) each story will be presented with 10 slides auto rotating every 45 seconds. Once the f'upper has made it through their story, the audience then has a few minutes to ask some questions.

We're kicking off our 2018 campaign with a bang! We've got an awesome lineup of failure stories and a new bi-monthly (that's every other month) format!

If you've been following FuckUp Nights Atlanta since the beginning, you know this is a side hustle's side hustle - only being able to pull off some FUN every once in a while. This year, we're changing things up and delivering a little consistency, along with the fail stories and brews.

In addition to a new bi-monthly format, we'll be coming to you live from Atlanta's fastest growing co-working space, WeWork. The team at WeWork has had our back since they moved into town and we're excited to show off their spaces to you.

FuckUp Nights Atlanta | vol. 5

Donald Glover's speech at the 2017 Golden Globes got us thinking... Atlanta is, in fact, the Hollywood of the South, and cultural phenomenon's ranging from Andre 3000 to Eleven all have one thing in common: Atlanta.

To celebrate the rise and sheer dominance of Atlanta on the entertainment industry, we've dubbed our fifth installment, Fail Live.

Join us as at WeWork Tower Place in Buckhead on Thursday, April 13 for an evening of F'up stories from some of Atlanta's rising names in the entertainment industry. 

Speakers announced next week! For more information about FuckUp Nights Atlanta, visit funatl.com.

High five to our Presenting Sponsor!


FuckUp Nights is a global movement born in Mexico in 2012 to share business failure stories. Since our inception here in Atlanta, hundreds of people come to each event to hear entrepreneurs, innovators and community leaders share their story. Each storyteller is given 7 minutes to share and reveal their lessons learned. After each speaker, there’s a question and answer session, as well as time for networking.
