Who we are

Together, as a community of founders, startup leaders, investors, business coaches and therapists, we’re advocating for the proactive care of founder mental health, endorsing it as not just a personal imperative, but an essential business investment.

How it started

Started at the onset of the March 2023 banking crisis as a simple Google doc, investors and startup leaders representing over 23,000 portfolio companies joined the pledge. In response to overwhelming support for the pledge, we’ve evolved FMHP into a growing organization that furthers our mission through measurable initiatives in research, education, grants, and events.

What success looks like

Success means empowering every entrepreneur to prioritize mental health and wellness. In doing so, they not only enhance their personal well-being but also build a deeper empathy for the well-being of their employees. This, in turn, drives superior business results and fosters job creation.
