FuckUp Nights
FuckUp Nights Puerto Rico, we talk about our entrepreneurial failures because we learn more from them than from our successes. Most entrepreneurs don’t create the “company of the year” on their first try and we present a realistic vision of what it means to be an entrepreneur. In each FuckUp Night, 3 to 4 entrepreneurs present their entrepreneurial failure stories in a fun environment at Piloto 151.

The Code 4 Puerto Rico is for those who want to get work done on civic projects, start a new project or find one to join (non-coders very welcome!), bounce ideas and get help from tech and government experts, learn about open data, smart cities, and open government.
