Founders and Emotional Health
Entrepreneurs are most often brilliant and creative, yet may be some of the most internally troubled. They are significantly more predisposed to depression, suicide, substance abuse, anxiety/panic, and self-medication, then other groups, and often suffer in silence. This workshop will focus on the intersection of the entrepreneurial quest for success and mental health. We’ll discuss the reasons why this phenomenon is on the rapid rise, why the problem is largely shrouded in silence, and how it impacts founders, their investors, and startup performance. Finally, we will outline which behavioral signs founders and investors can watch for, and what they can do to prioritize mental wellness.
