Libate and Learn 33: Mind over Matter – Making Founder Wellness a Priority

May 19, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

In honor of Mental Health Awareness month, join us as we look into how to prioritize wellness as a founder and available resources.

There are many things that founders juggle on a daily basis oftentimes leaving their personal well being as last on the to-do list. Join us remotely for a FREE virtual event with Synapse as we hear from existing founders on how they prioritize wellness for themselves and programs and resources they’ve initiated for other founders to prioritize their wellness. Expect to learn more about:

  • The impact stress can have on your leadership capabilities
  • Things you can implement today to make wellness a priority
  • What resources are available to founders for ongoing support

To facilitate deeper discussion please pose a question for our speakers within the EventBrite registration form.

*Libate is merely a suggestion. Consider this is more of a virtual social, educational, networking, happy hour. From Kombucha to Ketel One, all forms of libation are welcome.
