Salon 8
110 E 2nd St


What do Steve Jobs, Brad Feld, and Sir Richard Branson have in common with 49% of entrepreneurs?
The obvious answer they all started new ventures.
But there is a more surprising one, they all have life-long mental health conditions.
The mental health and cognitive diversity of entrepreneurs are some of their most overlooked traits. Yet, as anyone with a mental health condition can tell you, this factor plays a critical role in everyday decision-making and life.
Depression and ADHD are the two most common mental health conditions among entrepreneurs, affecting about 30% of entrepreneurs.
In this workshop, you will learn strategies and tools to battle these conditions in your life.
