FuckUp Nights (Held Monthly)
Fuckup Nights is a global movement born in Mexico in 2012 to publicly share business failure stories. Hundreds of people attend each event to hear three to four entrepreneurs share their failures. Each speaker is given 7 minutes and is able to use 10 images. After each speaker, there’s a question/answer session, as well as time for networking. Find the next event in your city.
Small Business Festival Victoria (Held Annually in August)
Small Business Festival is an annual curated events program across metropolitan and regional Victoria, providing ideas, information and networking opportunities to start, operate and grow a business.
The Festival has drawn hundreds of thousands of small business owners and managers over more than a decade, and provided businesses with the opportunity to exchange ideas, access free or low-cost information and support and establish valuable professional networks.
The Festival offers a wide range of practical, interactive and innovative events that cover topics such as business planning, marketing, social media, networking and financial management.
