Featured Session: Impact of “Instagram Syndrome” on Entrepreneurs’ Mental Health

Mar 16, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

The conversation around entrepreneurship often focuses on the difficulties of raising funds, building a team, and mundane logistics. But we don't talk enough about perhaps the most important aspect of the journey: the massive mental toll inflicted on leaders.

Young innovators are suffering from “Instagram Syndrome” - the idea that everyone has hustled their way to a fully funded company and a matching lifestyle by 30. But this curated perfect reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

Get real advice from Rob LoCascio, CEO and founder of LivePerson; Tim Storey, mental health advocate and life coach; and Gemma Correll, mental health influencer, as they explore how we can better prepare leaders for the struggles and path ahead.
