Ever wanted to change the world and found the world kicking back? You are not alone. Join us for a night of honest stories from some brilliantly ambitious people as they share their scars, failures and insights along the way to making change.

At FUN (F—- up nights) Cam, we want to open the stage for a celebration of professional failure in all its forms, with a particular focus on social endeavours. Success stories of social ventures are sexy and easy to tell, but failure is also integral to growing the field. FUN Cam exists to facilitate and share failure stories of social enterprises and businesses located in the Cambridge area. We hope that in sharing our failures we can learn from them, laugh at them, or at the very least, drink to them.

Our next FUN Cam event is on Wednesday, March 7th, 2018 from 6.30pm at 1815 The Union Bar. Come along to hear successful people bare their failure, meet some interesting people, and grab a drink as we cheers to life’s most grand, painful and serendipitous F—- ups. Get your tickets now through Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fun-cambridge-tickets-42498698752?aff=es2

Come join us to hear:
  • Karen Anderson of Cambridge Social Ventures share a start-up experience in which market, governance, business model, investment and human failures all came together.
  • Martin Clark, Deputy Chief Executive of Allia will explain (in his words) “how someone with no financial background tried to launch a major social investment strategy and made many horrible mistakes along the way.”
  • ThorA Rain, the founder and director of The Helpful Clinic, will let us in on the challenges of developing a first aid toolkit for mental health.
