Are you looking for a more meaningful work context? Do you want to set up a business with other Buddhists? Then join us to co-create a Buddhist Business in one day!

Buddhist businesses are an ideal context for people to work and deepen their practice together. They are an essential part of the Buddhist vision for a new society because they have a social or environmental goal, and are an effective way to spread the Dharma and Buddhist values.

During this event you’ll be inspired by a talk by Jnanavaca, stories from successful Buddhist businesses (Lamas Pyjamas and New View Residential), co-create Buddhist startup ideas and acquire the tools to plan and test your idea. At the end of the day, the teams will pitch their ideas to a friendly “Dragon’s Den” style panel of investors - Keturaja from Windhorse Trust, Amalavajra from Future Dharma Fund, Suryagupta from the LBC and Milly from Bethnal Green Ventures. So you’ll end the day with a tonne of insightful feedback from investors, contacts to get some startup money, as well as team members and a fleshed out idea for a Buddhist Business!
