About this event

This month we're celebrating Startup Grind Barcelona's 8th anniversary. On this special occasion, we have the pleasure to join forces with our colleagues at Fuckup Nights Barcelona to bring you an event that keeps the essence of both, the Startup Grind and Fuckup Nights, communities.  

Startup Grind is a global startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs. Our mission is to help every entrepreneur in the world. We do so by hosting a monthly recurring event to inspire, educate, and connect entrepreneurs. The Barcelona chapter was granted the "Best Chapter of the Year" award in 2016, with the average assistance of +130 attendees per event, having held over 100 editions since April 2014 and helping local entrepreneurs to take their projects to the next level.

Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of failure. 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.

The event will go as follows:

1. Welcoming words by Àlex Rodríguez Bacardit (Director @ Startup Grind BCN) & Carlos Cruz Rastrojo (Director @ Fuckup Nights BCN).

2. An open mic session where any attendee is free to speak up his mind or ask for a piece of advice from the community and receive feedback.

3. A fuckup story by Laura Fernández Giménez (CEO & Founder @AllWomen) hosted by Carlos Cruz, Director of Fuckup Nights Barcelona.

4. A fireside chat with Avi Meir (CEO & Founder @TravelPerk) hosted by our Chapter Director Àlex Rodríguez Bacardit.

5. A fuckup story by Ivan Garcia (Founder @Reboot) hosted by Carlos Cruz, Director of Fuckup Nights Barcelona.

6. Networking session in which attendees talk to each other freely over beers and delicious catering.

The ticket includes entrance to the event, food and beverages, and the networking session.
