A couple of years ago, capital was being pumped into startups at a breakneck pace and founders were pushed to ‘grow, grow, grow’... Then came the pandemic, forcing pivots and restructures… And now, economic fear looms eminently over the future.

In an uncertain world, founders can often find themselves caught between employees looking to them for security and investors counting on them to increase return. Founders are left anxious, under pressure and oftentimes, alone.

In the past, there seemed to be an unspoken “don't ask, don't tell" policy between founders and investors when it came to mental health, but recently, there are some promising examples of a new approach.

We invite top founders and investors to discuss how founders can cope with mental strains and how investors can support them in the process.

Join us in-person at Factory Berlin Görlitzer Park to discuss sustainable practices for both founders and investors to cope with the uncertainty of business venturing.

This event is hosted in collaboration with the Future of Work Circle, a sub-community of Factory Berlin.

About the Circles Program

Growing organically from our members’ desire to connect with one another, Circles are self-organized sub-communities at Factory Berlin, gathered around shared interests, industries, and projects, where members exchange ideas, inspire and support each other.
