Global Failure Index

Welcome to the Global Failure Index Survey, first of its name!

Just like some people are too scared to start their own business or project, some others are too scared or ashamed to share when their business or project fails. But not you! Thank you so much for filling out the survey and sharing with us. You already have a special place in our hearts.

We’re the Failure Institute, the research arm of Fuckup Nights, and we’re here collecting data on failed business from all around the world.

With just six minutes of your time, you can provide us with (completely anonymous) data that will help us understand why businesses fail. This information will be used for the Global Failure Index, an interactive map that helps entrepreneurs learn from prior failures to improve their decision-making.

In addition to the satisfaction of helping out other entrepreneurs, you’ll also receive a download of the Fuckup Book, which includes illustrations, activities, and some great stories about fuckups.

If you have any questions, drop us a line at, and we’ll get back to you ASAP. All right, let’s get cracking. Thanks again for your support!
