Over a weekend in September 2015, 100 people will gather to get inspired, cultivate new ideas and connect with likeminded people in a stunning natural setting, just 1 hour from London in 300 acres of rolling Sussex countryside.

At last year's event the torch was lit for our incredible community at The Happy Startup School. Those that were there know that they were part of something truly special. Some people called it the best event they'd ever experienced.

So we'll be back to do it all again this year. And we're looking to raise the bar once more. There are less than 20 spaces left. Can you afford not to be one of them?

 

WHICH FLOATS YOUR BOAT?

THIS...

A conference room full of grey suited mood hoovers and forced networking

OR THIS...

Go free range with people that believe there's a better way.

The conference is dead.

Love live the experience.

 
 

"A joyful, peaceful weekend that somehow gets everyone to tune into what they're actually meant to be doing with their life - and then shows them how to do it." Charles Davies

YOUR HOST FOR THE WEEKEND. DRUM ROLL PLEASE...

SANDERSON JONES FROM THE SUNDAY ASSEMBLY IS BACK!

 

A stand-up comedian (he sold out The Sydney Opera House, by hand...), former World Record holder of the world's longest hug (an impressive 24 hours, 33 minutes) and co-founder of The Sunday Assembly.

Sanderson blew us away last year with his charm and wit, so we had to have him back to make Summercamp what it is. 

"Sanderson was absolutely fantastic – his energy and wit made a tremendous difference to the feel of the event and to the momentum everyone felt."

IT'S TIME TO MAKE SHIFT HAPPEN

 

Summercamp is everything that's great about the Happy Startup community in a 3 day hit.

Expect inspirational speakers, woodland workshops, startup pitches, wellbeing, leftfield activities, delicious food, live music and meaningful campfire chats.

But most of all a group of people that 'get you'. Likeminded folk that want to do business differently whilst having fun along the way.

This is your tribe.

This is the weekend that will light your fire.

3 DAYS OF INSPIRATION, LEARNING & PLAY

 

This isn't your typical conference. There will be no neon strip lights or terrible coffee. Nor will there be slimy sales pitches or awkward networking.

This is about real people in a natural environment having meaningful conversations about the things that matter.

What is my role in this complex world we live in?

How can we build businesses that allow us to tap into our passions but still pay the bills?

How can I build my tribe?

How can we create a new model for business focused on abundance rather than scarcity?
