Founder Institute Lagos is proud to announce its upcoming public event: Founder Wellness: Managing Mental Health While Growing Your Startup, coming up on Thursday, June 9, 2022, at 6:00 PM.
A 2015 UCSF study shows that 72% of entrepreneurs report mental health concerns, and founders are 30% more likely to experience depression than non-founders. In some of the most extreme examples, founders have lost their lives to suicide and substance abuse, but many more live with depression and other disorders in silence. A founder’s mental health is important because it controls the inner narrative and determines how much one is in alignment with one’s creativity, productivity, and ingenuity. Proactive care of your mental well-being will preserve your talents as a creator and innovator, and help you optimize your performance as a leader.
Adeyemi Ajayi, Jonathan Okanlawon, Abisola Longe and Dr Debo Odulana will be sharing important insights that would help attendees evaluate and improve their mental health as founders and business owners. They will also share tips on how founders can deal with stress and pressure as an entrepreneur, ways to increase personal energy and team morale at a startup, how to identify and overcome internal doubts, and how to avoid being triggered and over-emotional responses as an entrepreneur among others.
