Startup accelerators and other programs for founders provide entrepreneurs with a range of services and funding. Now, some are including mental health help.
Take Google for Startups’ Black Founders Fund and Latino Founders Fund. Both year-long programs offer therapy to founders, aiming to address the unique challenges entrepreneurs of color face. (They also provide $150,000 in cash and $100,000 in Google cloud credits, plus business coaching).
“It’s great to give founders the hard skills, but it’s not enough,” says Chantel Cohen, who heads Atlanta-based CWC Coaching & Therapy and provides mental health services to founders in the Black Founders Fund. “They also need the softer skills—and they need mental health support.”
