Investors that care about founder mental health
As a founder, you have to function and work hard – that’s what the start-up scene teaches. Few talk about the consequences of not knowing when to take a break. Many forget that breaks are a fuel that enables creative results and even faster results than continuing to work without breaks. This is dangerous for the health of the founder, but also for the investors.
