Data Science Start-up Night: F*ck-up Night

Join us for the F*ckup Night at JADS! Instead of startups pitching how awesome they are, we found startup entrepreneurs who share their f*ckups so you don’t have to make them. Listen and learn, and maybe laugh a little. During the event, you can interact with the speakers and the audience.

Be inspired and join us on March 2!
