MentalWellness

Mental Wellness for Business

Mental health is often ignored while starting up a company - there’s just too much to do.  After listening to thousands of founders discuss the many challenges they have faced, it became clear that we needed a deliberate way to talk about mental health in a professional setting.

This program provides education about the psychological challenges that entrepreneurs experience regularly while providing actionable steps to make positive changes. The goal of this program is to promote emotional, psychological, and social well-being.

Frequency

#InvestInWomenFounders Summit

Our annual #InvestInWomenFounders Summit is an opportunity for our women founders to secure investment from funders in our community. To avoid pattern matching, each founder is paired with a seasoned entrepreneur or senior executive from a major company. These proven entrepreneurs/execs interview the founder (think Oprah style interview) and ask questions that will allow founders to cover the content in their decks.

These moderated conversations are more personal, relaxed, and allow the audience to engage with the founder in a supportive way. Each interviewer goes through extensive training alongside the woman business owner they have been matched with prior to the event.

Frequency 

Annual | Thursday, December 5, 2024 | Noon - 6pm ET at Delta Faucet

Audience  

Entrepreneurs, Investors, Corporate Executives

*This half day event is open to the public.
