Building a Happy Start-Up
When many of us hear the words startup we think of the lone genius working in her garage with some breakthrough idea that is going to turn into a huge business that they can then “exit”, then go sit on the beach for the rest of their lives.
My guest and his co-founder have taken a different approach. Through their business The Happy Startup School they have built a strong community of changemakers that value happiness over profits. In our conversation, we talk about what The Happy Startup School does, their origin and why they do what they do.
Some of the key ideas discussed
Community and connection
The power of a like-minded group
How making space creates breakthroughs
About the Alptitude Event
From the Alptitude website:
It’s not a retreat, nor a training camp. It’s not a vacation, nor an unconference. It’s all of those things, yet none of them.
Think of it as a week where you’ll have the time and space to figure out where you’re at with your life and projects, whilst having more fun than you’ve had in years. This is the future of business events – emergent, playful and transformational.
Brought to you by The Happy Startup School and Dream Valley Projects and now in its third year, Alptitude brings together 25 purpose-driven entrepreneurs and changemakers from around the world for a unique, meaningful experience in stunning natural surroundings.
The lucky few that come leave with a renewed vigour for life, a ton of game-changing ideas to implement, but most importantly a shared experience and group of new friends that will stick with them forever. Friends they never knew they needed, but now can’t live without.
