The world of Retail and E-commerce is going through some major shifts. In the last few years, we've seen unprecedented closings and bankruptcies at major chains and brands. But, for every grim announcement of closures and divestments, there are countless exciting announcements of investment and rebirth.

Retail isn't dying, it's evolving. To compete in this new world of commerce, what's needed is innovation. Failure, trying new things and taking risks often leads to just that.

To learn from some recent Retail & E-commerce failures, we’ve rounded up some of the best in the business to share their Fuckups using 10 images and 10 minutes each.

Join us at 6:30PM on September 25th at OneEleven in Toronto for a very special, Retail & E-commerce edition of Fuckup Nights Toronto. We’ll drink, we’ll laugh, and we’ll all learn why fucking up just part of the journey to success.

Who should attend? Retail professionals, CPG brand managers, retail tech professionals, e-commerce entrepreneurs, and anyone who is interested in the evolving world of commerce. We'll be exploring the intersection of technology, brands and retailers.

WTF is Fuckup Nights?

Failure is a part of any success story, but we don't talk about it enough. We've all been to plenty of events where people tell you how they hacked, hustled, and created their success, but very few where someone gets up and says "I totally messed up, and this is what you can learn from it."

Fuckup Nights Toronto is part of a global speaker series where stories of failed businesses and projects are shared. Sharing these stories creates a culture shift around failure, and enables a mindset of innovation. Each speaker is given 10 minutes and is able to use 10 images. After each speaker, there’s a Q&A session, as well as time for mingling and drinks!

300+ cities, 84+ countries, 10 minutes, 10 images, 1 failure.


6:30 - 7:00 pm: Registration, meeting fellow fuckuppers, drinks and food (included in your ticket price!)

7:00 - 8:30pm: Fuckup presentations + Q&A

8:30 - 9:30pm: More drinks, more mingling with fellow fuckuppers
