We help you turn your startup idea into a happy, thriving business

Have a day out at the seaside AND get your startup on the right path to success


Happy beach is back! After a successful first event, we’re flocking to the shores of Brighton again to spend the day in a truly idyllic venue working on how we can build a business doing something we love.

Join us and a bunch of likeminded entrepreneurs to learn how you can turn your idea into a hugely successful startup with a tribe of super fans, in just a day.

Happy beach workshop

Delicious lunch, happy startups goodie box and a free ride on the happy bus from the station, all included! We’ve also got guest speaker Kate Taylor, author & coach at Up Coaching working with us to share the key to success in business, failing fast and failing often.
