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

Nothing to see here. Just happiness, gongs and bad dancing.


The Happy Startup Home School LIVE Webinar

We’ve been blown away by the response to our first online program, and already have had more than 50 entrepreneurs signed up – a real mix of folk from around the globe but all with a common goal – entrepreneurial happiness! Last Tuesday eve, Laurence and Carlos talked us through our unique approach to building a business, a little about their story, as well as what you can expect from the 4 week 4Ps program, including some great questions from those watching live. And every minute was recorded so if you missed it, you can watch too :)


For the course we’ve got entrepreneurs joining us from as far afield as India, Mexico, Singapore, Australia, The US, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, the UK and Ireland. We’re working on virtual map of all attendees so you can see your fellow students wherever they may be. Excited about this.

Anyone recall the beautiful summer weather we had last Friday? Half the Happy Startups crew worked from the beach, whilst the other founding half ran a session on the Happy Startup Canvas at TEDx Brighton. Great buzz, and great to be involved.

Our Laurence has been working remotely from Turkey this week. He’s out there mentoring at a startup camp near Kemer and unplugging on hikes with fellow founders and digital nomads. Looking forward to hear about his travels on his return :) He says he’s being productive out there (hmm…), although he has today posted a new Medium blog if you’re interested –  ‘Dear startups, what bangs your gong?’

What’s next for us?

With Global Entrepreneurship Week around the corner, we have a busy few weeks lined up. Join us:

  • Happy Startup Canvas Workshop: Learn how to make your startup a happy one
    A night class to help people build a business they believe in using the right framework. We’re hitting up the inspiring Office Group venue on Rivington St. Shoreditch for this one, as part of the Hacking Happiness conference which Laurence is speaking at the next day. Tickets still available for the workshop if you’re quick (£30 + vat).
  • Meaning Conference
    We’re partnering with Meaning Conf this year, and couldn’t be more excited. It’s easily one of the most forward thinking conferences we’ve attended and we’re delighted to be running a session on the mezzanine level. If you’re coming along, look out for us and say hey.
  • Happy Startup Breakfast Club: #leancoffee
    We’re bringing the ‘structured but agenda-less’ #leancoffee to our home in Brighton. There’ll be a group of us creative types gathering at our HQ to discuss a democratically chosen topic. Come along, it’s free, there’ll be coffee and you can have a nosey round Happy HQ.
  • The Happy Startup *Home* School
    Officially launching on the 25th November. It’s a big thing for us as we’ll finally be helping entrepreneurs from all across the world build happy, thriving businesses not just the UK. If you’ve followed our story for a while now, you’ll know we don’t do things by halves, so we really hope you can be a part of it. And if you’re all signed up from overseas, we can’t wait to meet you.

Thanks so much for your support so far folks  ❤

Happy weekend!
