🏕 What’s new at Happy Startup Summercamp 2022
When I sat down to write a similar email 3 years ago almost to the day, little did I realise we’d be in 2022 before we’d be planning this gathering again.
So after 2 years of hibernating it’s a joy to be able to share this with you.
This September we’re inviting many of those that have inspired us with their work over the last couple of years, to conjure up an experience you’ll never forget.
Happy Startup Summercamp is a living, breathing community of likeminded people who want to make the most of the time they have left on this planet. And not do it alone.
And it’s not just for startups — far from it. Whatever stage you’re at there’s always a need to keep creating, reinventing, imagining your work and life. Based not just on where you’re at, but where you’d like to be — and maybe you don’t know exactly what that is yet.
This is where Summercamp comes into its own. A place to get inspired, inspire others, learn and connect together through a transformational shared experience.
Below I’ve shared some of the magic you can get to experience at camp this year.
And if you’re not yet booked on get your application in today while we still have room.

“Summercamp has given me a priceless sense of belonging. The encouragement to believe my ideas are possible, but also the knowledge to know it’s going be really difficult. It’s given me validation for me and my passions, it’s provided me with a tonne of likeminded and generous friends and supporters. It’s provided access to all the knowledge I don’t yet have, without which it would be easy to give up on the dream. So all that. And as an experience in its own right, its was extraordinary. The euphoria, the affection and the fun made it probably the most amazing weekends I have/will ever have had.” — Kevin
