Where innovation and introspection meet: A guide for managing stress as a startup founder

Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021 | 1 p.m. ET | Zoom Webinar (RSVP)

Join KickStart Venture Services for the next edition of the KickStart Presents webinar series. “Where innovation and introspection meet: a guide for managing stress as a startup founder” will include an overview of mindfulness and a guided practice from teacher and self-compassion researcher, Dr. Karen Bluth, followed by a Q&A with our speaker and two startup founders who have successfully navigated the stresses of launching and growing their venture. We’ll be joined for Q&A by Emily Behr, founder of Growga, and Laura Fieselman, co-founder of Equiti Foods.

Topics covered will include the importance of building a community of peers, navigating a pivot in your business with grace, finding the right morning routine, and more. Startup founders looking for ways to help manage the stress they experience should come prepared with questions for the presenter and panelists who will be available to answer questions on building healthy habits, finding belonging with their peers, and hiring the right team. By attending this webinar, founders will learn tangible skills for managing the unique stressors they face and how to integrate mindfulness into their business.
