Events, Workshops, and Programs for a culture of vulnerability and trust.

This is the

Failure Institute

We  work with corporations, NGOs, and governments around the world to design experiences that change the culture of work.

We build safe environments where leaders embrace failure to encourage vulnerability and trust in ways that foster innovative organizational cultures through events, workshops, and programs.

We are part of Fuckup Nights®, present in more than 300 cities and 90 countries.

Let’s get started!
