“Are you okay?” Livestream Details
The coronavirus is already affecting so many areas of business life. As startup founders, we have to hope for the best, but plan for the worst. In this livecast, we will explore why it is important to understand the realities of the upcoming economic challenges of running a start-up business in the recessionary landscape we are about to face and how these may affect your own mental health. Pressures will significantly increase for all of us all, but these pressures will tend to focus on founders with laser-like force.
On the panel we will have experienced advisors and commentators who can help us all make sense of what most start-up founders are about to face. As social distancing increasingly turns to social isolation, it will be vital for the start-up community to come together and once again ask each other “Are you okay?”. The campaign worked beautifully in late 2019 and will be needed even more in 2020 as we face this difficult and turbulent landscape.
The next few months are going to be very challenging for all of us. By being able to rationalise your own thoughts about your business you will be better placed to hope for the best and plan for the worst.
