The headlines of the past few years all speak the same message - there’s a mental health crisis going on in the entrepreneurship society. Approximately 49% of entrepreneurs suffer from at least one mental health condition during their lifespan. Studies say that start-up founders are twice as likely to suffer from depression, three times more likely to suffer from substance abuse, 10 times more likely to suffer from bipolar disorder, twice as likely to have a psychiatric hospitalisation and twice as likely to have suicidal thoughts.
Our goal is to create inspiring events focusing on work-life balance and overall well-being. We want to foster discussion and raise important questions around the challenges students and young professionals face in today’s competitive work environment, as those topics can be difficult to cope with alone. Our target audience is students and young workers with an entrepreneurial mindset.
