Ashram – 7 days that could change everything


Ashram
Goa 2019

Level up your impact over 7 days in Goa

 

A playground for founders, leaders & changemakers

FEBRUARY 2019, GOA, INDIA

Brought to you by The Happy Startup School from the UK, Ashram is a unique opportunity to connect, share knowledge and meaningful experiences with a small group of likeminded people.

After the success of our 2016, 2017 and 2018 events, we're now accepting applications from changemakers from around the world for our next event on the beaches of North Goa, India. Whether you're at the start of your journey or years in, Ashram is a place to take a pause from day-to-day life and get the perspective you need to level up your impact.

Since those first events, new businesses have been started, books have been published, teams have changed the way they work and a powerful community has been formed.  If this sounds like your kind of gathering, then we'd love to hear from you.

The week that dreams are made of

 

Last year we had purpose-driven entrepreneurs, creatives and leaders join us from Australia, Bangaladesh, Brazil, Israel, Europe, the US and across India. The youngest was 19, the oldest 55. We're expecting an equally diverse mix of people once again. 

This isn't just for startups or 'millennials', it's for anyone that has an open mind, values collaboration and authentic connection with likeminded people. Our first editions tell us this will be an experience none of those who come will ever forget.

Join us in Goa this coming February and experience:

Beachside accommodation in Mandrem, Goa

Exquisite food

Unwinding with yoga

Surfing and kayaking

Backwater boat trips

Birdwatching

Taking in local markets

Permaculture farms

Cookery classes

Meeting inspiring Indian social entrepreneurs

Peer to peer mentoring

Pitch your challenge for help from the group

Share your story

Share and learn knowledge from your peers

Walking at moonlight

And best of all, everything is optional so you get the week you want.
