Happy Startup Summercamp is the annual gathering brought to you by The Happy Startup School, open to just 100 people who want to leave their positive mark on the world, by starting or changing something through their work.
Held in the Sussex countryside “a small group of budding entrepreneurs, creatives, innovators, movement makers and startup founders will gather”.
Over the course of the weekend there’s a full schedule of talks to listen to, workshops to get involved in, communal meal times, as well as more leisurely group activities (bushcrafting and cider making have previously featured) – take your pick as to what you want to participate in.
In 2017 talks included ‘Taking courageous action is everyone’s business’ and ‘So you want to start a startup?’, while workshops included ‘How to be a changemaker’ and ‘Goal mapping’.
The Guardian has named it “one of the top 10 business events in Europe”.
Ashram in India and Alptitude in the French Alps and USA are both one-week long getaways from The Happy Startup School to share learnings with like-minded changemakers, get new skills and experiences under your belt, and feel inspired to head in a new direction.
