About the course
At this event, we will be looking at how VCs should think about mental health and wellbeing in their investment management activities as well as their own firms. For many founders, riding the highs and lows of the entrepreneurial journey can be a lonely one. How can VCs work with founders to support positive mental health and wellbeing in a way that ultimately drives better investment performance? The event will explore common beliefs, taboos, challenges, case studies, and present ideas and practical actions that VCs can take to their teams and founders.
