We believe that nurturing your mindset and personal growth while running your business is an essential attribute of your long-term success.

Research has revealed that 72% of entrepreneurs are affected by mental health conditions.

We’re here to offer opportunities that aim to enhance the wellbeing of entrepreneurs and help change the stigma attached to mental health concerns, providing access to a unique support network of like-minded people.

“Calmer Community is the best form of networking and confidence building to help you create the next step in your business journey. It helped me understand myself better and I made so many new contacts for my business.”

- Vanessa Lee, Founder of Passion Fruit Tree
“This event was simply amazing! I attended not really knowing what to expect, but knowing that it would help me on my journey. I got loads of love, support and encouragement - would definitely recommend and come back again.”

- Signe Christensen, Founder of Rener

The spirit of entrepreneurs is nothing short of astounding. While there are many advantages and rewards of being a business owner, there is another side to the entrepreneur lifestyle that we feel is important to raise awareness of. It takes an exceptional amount of courage, adaptability and commitment (among many other strengths) to sustain and grow your business, which at times can feel like a lot to take on your shoulders.

Following our recent survey, "A study into the wellbeing of entrepreneurs", insights from our 70 respondents revealed that connecting with other like-minded entrepreneurs and having access to monthly support groups is a priority. As a result, we piloted Calmer Community in partnership with The Canvas Café in July 2017 and are now running
these support group events on a bi-monthly basis.

The first support group of its kind in the UK, we provide a confidential space for entrepreneurs to talk openly about their state of wellbeing, personal experiences around mental health concerns and increase access to support. We’re here to equip you with guidance, tools and inspiration to boost your quality of life while managing the daily demands of running your business.

We look forward to welcoming you into our community
