FuckUp Nights Bangkok:
"Thriving on Failure"

23 September 2016
18.30 - 21.00 hrs
BU Gallery, 119 Rama 4 Road, Klong Toey, Bangkok

Edison tried more than 10,000 times to create a light bulb, Dyson attempted around 5,126 times to invent a bag-less vacuum cleaner and of course there is Henry Ford. Henry Ford was the founder of the Ford Motor company. Not many people are aware that he was known as an intelligent, yet failed engineer who just couldn’t produce. His need to perfect every product he created led to late deliveries to customers that tarnished his early reputation. But it was these early failures that taught him valuable lessons and sparked his future success. Failure is obviously a necessary stepping stone to achieving our dreams.
It is a simple truth that no great success was ever achieved without failure.
Let’s come together at Fuckup Nights Bangkok and learn from each other.
