Free Your Mind and Your Startup Will Follow

One of the most important, but often neglected, areas to consider when launching a company is wellness. Running a business is hard and it can take a toll on your health. If you’re not prepared, #startuplife can easily take over your life from your workout routine, increase stress, and take over time with loved ones. This week, take a break from the rat race and take back your mind and sanity.

From VR workouts, anti-aging research, to an Elixir bar takeover, we got you covered. See the lineup below for the details.
