The Art of Learning from Mistakes


We live in an unprecedented time of transformation. Digital Technologies are impacting not only companies but the society as a whole: Industry 4.0, Virtual Reality, gamification, Smart Cities, wearable clothes … are just some of the buzz words. This is driving organizational change, with it a cultural revolution.

Innovation requires a mindset accepting setbacks, adjustments, mistakes, errors as part of the development path.

When innovation happens at this incredible rapid pace, the art of learning from mistakes becomes crucial.

A movement where stories of failed businesses and projects are shared, discussed and embraced is growing globally – FuckUp Nights.

It started in 2012 in Mexico City and is now the most active creator’s movement on the planet – it means that every month more than 10.000 people make time to go to FuckUp Nights –short FUN – and listen to

3 people who share their stories in 7 minutes and 10 images

  • What was the project?
  • What went wrong?
  • What did you learn?
  • What would you do differently?

Today there are 143 active cities in 53 countries where people listen to three stories about failure each lasting 7 minutes on a regular basis.

So GO OUT and find a FuckUp Night near you.

If it is not in your city yet, move to a city where it is 🙂 … or ORGANIZE one in your city.

Happy to support you in it.
Because I am just in the middle of doing this myself and it is my “must” to share my experiences with others. Thanks to everyone sharing their experience with me: The FuckUpNight international community, Salomé Wagner from FUN Vienna, Claudius Krucker from FUN St.Gallen and Réginald Bien-Aimé and Fanny Bauer organizing FUN in Geneva, Lausanne and Zurich.

We are putting Basel – Switzerland’s most dynamic and innovative economic area – on the Map:

The specialty: Basel is located shoulder to shoulder to Germany and France – actually a stone throw distance from almost all corners of the city – with globally present companies. Therefore the event is trilingual (English, Deutsch, Francais).

What is the specialty of your city?
