According to a 2015 study by UCSF, 72% of entrepreneurs report mental health concerns, and founders are 30% more likely to experience depression than non-founders. With the long hours, astronomical expectations, and rollercoasters of emotion many entrepreneurs encounter, this will come as no surprise to many founders (but still not offer much solace). On this live and interactive webinar, we will discuss these issues with Gabe Zichermann, a 6X tech entrepreneur and author who has succumbed to these stresses himself, and believes most founders he has met have displayed mental or other extreme behavioral issues. Join us for a candid and open discussion where vulnerability, honesty, and openness around founder wellness will be encouraged.
