Our Story

Where We Started

Startup Happy is the brainchild of Josh Christy, President and CEO of Codelation, a software, app and mobile development company designed for startup success. 

Sick and tired of witnessing startups fail (including watching their own ideas go up in flames), Josh and his team developed Startup Happy to fill in the failure-prone gaps common among new and experienced entrepreneurs. 

Simple, Loveable, Complete

Designed around the concept of  “Simple, Lovable and Complete,” Startup Happy teaches entrepreneurs how to vet their startup idea using the best techniques collected, curated, tested and proven by the world’s leading experts.
