Fall 2015 Week 2

A few months ago, a mentor expressed concern over the health of the teams going through the program. Although it’s no secret that accelerators push founders to put their all into accomplishing a lot in a short amount of time – that’s the point – we knew we had to do something. Health and hard work need not be mutually exclusive. So, as we’ve previously mentioned, we’re now more actively placing an emphasis on health. 

That’s why Lindsay Davis, a Wellness Coach, stopped by this week to speak to the teams. She discussed how to hack your health: the best apps to track what you eat and how you workout, the link between diet and memory, how walking meetings boost creativity by 60%, and much more.
