We at the Icelandic Start-Up Center know that deep within ourselves we seek to experience freedom and independence both in our personal and professional life. We seek to be financially independent and free to use our time as we please. At the same time we know that by executing social innovation & start-up projects we can both get the support and give to the society new opportunities and value.
Most innovators & entrepreneurs choose their path because they dream about life of freedom and independence. Those who truly are free and independent have the opportunity to do whatever they want, as mush as they want, whenever and wherever they want.
The Start-up life model is designed to make this a possible reality for the average people. The aim is to give people equal access to solutions, resources and tools for entrepreneurial collaboration in order to grant people opportunity to work and create new value by doing something they love.

The Start-Up Life Groups are for those who invest their time in helping and working with other like minded people to experience true freedom and happiness. The Start-Up Life Groups follow the Start-Up Life Guide to be able to work as much as they want, whenever and wherever they want.
