What?

START AGAIN

After the global pandemic a lot of us are in a reseting or restarting point. The climate crisis and all the social and economic issues not only affect us in a general level but also the companies we work for, our families and our personal and professional situation. It's not uncommon to hear about burnouts or breaks downs. So we believe this topic is rooted in the global situation but it affects all of us. So we want to utilise this summit to give the attendees the time and space to refocus and “start” again”.

WHO IS IT FOR?

This is for any female identifying person looking to start or grow a business in the action sports industry. It’s for creatives, freelancers, entrepreneurs in any section of the industry including apparel, media, tourism, guiding and more. It’s for women with an idea for a business they know could succeed if only they had the tools, knowledge, and community bring it to life. It’s for women at the idea stage of their business and for women who have been in business for years looking to refresh, revamp, or adapt their business to the changing landscape. It’s for any woman aching to live life a little differently, yearning to make the jump into running their own business, scared but excited to commit to building something of their own. It’s for the women asking:
 

  • Can I really build a business?

  • Will someone pay for x, y,z?

  • What if I fail?

  • What do I need to do to make this happen?

  • What’s next for my business?

  • Why is this so hard?

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Through WASN I met some of the most inspiring and influential women in the board- and action sports scene. WASN events are not a classic conference where everyone wants to show off and tell the others how things get done. No! They are about learning from each other, grow together and most important it is about very valuable connections that can become friendships.

EL MARESME

El Maresme is a region located between Barcelona and the Costa Brava that combines the richness of an internationally recognized tourist area with beaches of Mediterranean beauty, active marinas, culture, gastronomy and the traditions of its popular festivals with lush vegetation of the three parks: Serralada Litoral, Montnegre and Corredor; and Serra Marina.
 

Maresme is made up of 30 municipalities; 16 on the coast and 14 inland and has become a good cultural and leisure alternative. Natural spaces with marked paths and trails, beaches with multiple services to enjoy the summer, cultural routes and a wide range of museums to visit, leisure companies with original proposals... A gastronomy based on products from the garden and the sea, where strawberry, pea, squid and DO Alella wines stand out, among others. An entire offer based on quality products.

HOW TO GET THERE

Only 20 minutes from Barcelona we find the beautiful village of Premià de Dalt, home of one of the most iconic European action sports facilities, La Poma Bikepark. 

Only five minutes from the bikepark there is Can Casadellà, the fabulous rural hotel which will become our home during this bootcamp.

The owners Magda and Josep  will welcome us in their three-storey manor house with side galleries and a sgraffito façade in the style of colonial Caribbean houses in a cozy and relaxed atmosphere surrounded by nature.

The house is located in the middle of a five-hectare estate, which includes an orchard, fields and a Mediterranean pine forest, all surrounded by gardens.

Throughout the estate you can walk along wide paths that lead to a variety of charming corners, enjoy the old pond in front of the house which has been converted into a swimming pool or you can relax in the sun or in the shade of centuries-old trees.
