The week that dreams are made of

 

20-27 February 2017, Goa, India

Brought to you by The Happy Startup School, Ashram will be a week long learning adventure like no other. Expect game-changing ideas, endless inspiration and incredible new friendships.

We're looking for 25 purpose-driven entrepreneurs and changemakers from around the world to gather, share stories, learn about life and business and take some time out to enjoy one of the world's most magical countries.

Read more about what happened at our first Ashram in Chennai earlier this year. Since that incredible event, businesses have been started, books have been published and a unique supportive community has been formed.

Now we're back to do it all again. This time Goa is calling. Ready?

 
 

“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 experiences. Simple, beautiful and life changing.” Jack Hubbard, CEO Propellernet

Who’s it for?

Following on from the incredible success of Ashram 2016, we're looking for a small group of startup founders, innovators and changemakers to do it all again.

Our first event tells us this will be an experience none of us will ever forget. Don't believe us? Read the stories from the people who were there and you'll get a flavour of what to expect.

Beachside accommodation in Mandrem, Goa

Eating exquisite food

Unwinding with yoga

Catching fish & surfing

Taking backwater boat trips

Birdwatching

Old villages where time stands still

Visiting permaculture farms

Cookery classes

Meeting Indian social entrepreneurs

Walking at moonlight on the beach shore

And best of all, everything is optional. This is about you choosing the week you want. There's as little or as much adventure as you want.

 
 

“Ashram was a dream. Finally I found a group of likeminded people who were nothing but supportive and extremely fun to be around.”
