Optimize For Happiness’ Start Your Business Retreat is about more than business alone. It’s about creating the right conditions, offering the right content, providing the right tools and bringing the right people together to get your creative juices flowing and your productivity thriving. We do not only offer 3 hours of business classes per day, but we pay extraordinary attention to healthy nutrition, yoga and surf activities, workshops and inspiring entrepreneurial speakers.

We aim to bring 12 to 15 great minds together because we believe in the value of shared goals, getting outside perspective and accountability. We know that co-work and co-creation will not only help you focus on realising your dream, but it will allow you to achieve more than alone as well. We chose the beautiful Ericeira as it's the mekka of surf, yoga, mindful living and in close vicinity of the upcoming entrepreneurial ecosystem of Lisbon.
