Ashram – 7 days that could change everything


Ashram
Goa 2018

The week that dreams are made of

 

20-27 February 2018, Goa, India

Brought to you by the renowned The Happy Startup School from the UK, Ashram is an experience that's hard to put into words. A unique opportunity to put your life on pause for a week, and get the space you need to get clear on the road ahead – with the support of new friends from around the world.

We're now accepting applications from changemakers that are keen to share beautiful experiences and share knowledge with likeminded people in one of the world's most magical countries. Since our first events in 2016 and 2017, businesses have been started, books have been published and a supportive community has been formed. Now we're back to do it all again in 2018. 

Maybe this is your time? If you feel it could be, we'd love to hear from you.

“I said it before and now it has been proven again and taken to the next level. This is the future of business events. Likeminded people sharing meaningful experiences. Simple, beautiful and life changing.”

Jack Hubbard, Founder Propellernet

Who’s it for?

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

Fishing & surfing

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.
