Join us on May 18, 2022, for an intimate program in our Chicago office, as we welcome Andy Dunn, Co-Founder of the menswear startup Bonobos. Dunn will tell us about his unconventional entrepreneurial journey to success as he built a multimillion-dollar brand while battling bipolar disorder. His upcoming book, Burn Rate: Launching a Startup and Losing My Mind, was named by Forbes Magazine as “one of the most anticipated books of 2022.” Hear how Dunn, against all odds, created a digitally native, direct-to-consumer business when he was fresh out of Stanford’s MBA program. What he kept hidden from everyone was his relentless effort to raise tens of millions of dollars to keep his startup from sinking, while battling manic depression. He found himself overcome by ambition that bordered on delusion, over-confidence, and an incessant drive that threatened to unravel everything.
In acknowledgment of Mental Health Awareness month, we hope that this dynamic conversation illuminates the challenges that many entrepreneurs encounter as they pursue innovation and success.
We will also send books to registrants in advance. Please send your address to Lauren Dietz firstname.lastname@example.org and we will have a copy shipped to you.
We hope you can join us!
