F*ckUp Night VOL.15

March 22, 2023 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM (PDT)


F*ckUp Night VOL 15

Cheers to a new year of successes and failures. 

Returning for another season, Victoria's favourite #fails night will return on March 22nd. Nothing like watching accomplished, confident people share their still-raw, professional disasters with a crowd of 250 community members.

Better than crying. Cheaper than therapy. 

F*ckUp Nights is a global movement where stories of failed businesses and projects are told, questioned and celebrated. It started in 2012 in Mexico City and we've brought it to Victoria.

3 "f*ckuppers" will have 7 minutes each to tell their story and up to 10 minutes for Q&A. What was the project? What went wrong? What did they learn? What would they do differently? 

Please note this event is 19+.

F*ckUppers (Speakers): 

Laurel Anne Stark
What could be better than being the youngest partner in a fast-growing marketing tech firm? For Laurel Anne, it was a dream come true. And yet somehow, here she was staring down the barrel of a gun she didn't even realize she had loaded herself.

David "Jam" Ramjattan
He always wanted to change the world. So when Jam was tapped to oversee building schools in Afghanistan, he knew he was the one to make it happen. But things aren't always what they seem... especially when you desperately want them to be.

Melodie Reynolds
Melodie built her company into one of the true rising stars in the sustainable cosmetics industry. But at those heights there's always the risk of flying too close to the sun. And no amount of makeup was going to fix that burn.

We are always looking for future prospects to share their stories with our community. Pop us over a quick note to if you think you have something. You'll meet with one of our committee members to hear about your story, and if they feel there's a story to be told, you'll get to be a part of the curation sessions where we help you in putting your story together! It's an exhilarating experience, almost like therapy... but much more fun. Afterwards you will be a part of an elite group of F*ckUp alumni!

Please note: 

VIATEC will have a photographer in attendance at the event to capture attendees networking and taking in the presentations. Should you wish to not have photos of you on our Flickr page, please contact prior to the event.  

No recording of the presentations is permitted.
