We're Laurence and Carlos, the founders of The Happy Startup School (and friends since actual school). We've created this community as an antidote to the soulless, traditional business networks and institutions that exist.
Here you'll find a thriving community of purpose-driven founders and leaders that think like you do. Where you’ll get the help you need, just when you need it.
This is for those that want to make a positive dent in the world.
This is your tribe.
As featured in
The people you'll meet in this community are a different breed. Where others see competition and self-interest, they see collaboration.
The right question can transform a business. We ask the crunchy questions that get you thinking deeper.
Conversations that matter
We firmly believe that vulnerability is the route to authentic connections, so we've created a safe space where we can sweat the big stuff.
Over the last 5 years we've built our reputation on creating game-changing experiences and programs both online and around the world that help people realise that dream in their head. This app brings together everything into one place – all at your fingertips and for a fraction of the cost of our in-person gatherings.
Each quarter we have a different focus in the community to help you develop mastery in areas where you need to level up – whether you're in the rat race and wanting to bring more passion and purpose to your work, or an idealist struggling to make ends meet.
