What are FuckUp Nights? FuckUp Nights is a monthly event where awesome people talk about one of their biggest professional or business failures in a candid and irreverent way.
What can you expect? Three or four fuckupreneurs will get up and share their story, including what the project was, what they did wrong, what they learned from it, and what they’d do differently.
Why are we doing this? Because you learn more from failure than success, and we have to shake off the stigma attached to failing – overnight success is often unrealistic.

Getting Here:
You can find street parking around the building or park at the 700 Biscayne lot right $5 for across from the American Airline Arena.
Traveling by MetroRail/MetroMover? Disembark at Park West Station right behind our building.
To access the building walk in thru the residential entrance of the MarinaBlue Building (888 Biscayne Blvd). Check in with concierge and make sure they direct you to the commercial/office door where KeyWorking is located on the 5th floor.
