The Missing Piece of Social Impact Investing: Sustained Founder Wellbeing

Christy Johnson June 23, 2022

Something good and lasting cannot grow from rotten roots. Many of the world’s most pressing challenges are being addressed by visionary entrepreneurs, but the road to lasting change is long and tumultuous. For a founder to stay “in the game,” and build a scalable company with scalable solutions, that founder must be anchored in sustainable practices for their holistic wellbeing.

Investing in holistic founder health not only humanizes early-stage impact investing, it is also wise financial stewardship. Founders who are anchored in relationships, health, and their purpose have the resilience, flexibility, and humility to build strong businesses for positive social impact.

The startup community is only beginning to address the mental health and company culture crisis in the industry. The conversation must continue and deepen by integrating the physical, relational and spiritual health of founders.

Join this fireside chat to discover how different investors approach holistic founder wellbeing and how founders integrate their physical, spiritual, mental, and relational health into their startup journey.
