The week that dreams are made of

 

February 2018, Goa, India

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

We're now accepting applications for the 25 spaces. From 19-26 February 2018 we'll welcome purpose-driven entrepreneurs, changemakers and creatives 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.

Since our first two events in 2016 and 2017, 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 in Goa. Ready?

 

Early bird discount available for applications in October

 

“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?

Following on from the incredible success of Ashram 2016 and 2017, 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.

Unwinding with yoga

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.

"I could not imagine a more empathetic, intuitive, fun, soul fulfilling retreat if I tried. I had walked in not knowing what to expect, and was blown away. I've learnt lessons for life, made friends for life and have discovered massive things about myself that I did not know."

Nisha Bora, Founder Elrhino
