Corey Thomas, CEO of Rapid7 once said, “You can’t build a company unless you start from a healthy place.” Most other successful startup founders agree with the sentiment, but, what does this mean?

- How might physical health be measured by more than stamina, strength, and endurance?

- Could spiritual health be regarded as where one feels loved — so much that love and validation can then be given to others effortlessly without expecting anything in return?

- Or what if mental health wasn't defined by what was wrong with people, but by what's right — characteristics like curiosity, mindfulness, empathy, and self-discipline?

- Healthy companies start with healthy entrepreneurs. But what do we mean by that — and, from there, how do we measure it?

Moderated by Laura Hessler, currently Manager of Talent Acquisition at BlueCross Blueshield of Tennessee, has advised numerous startups on HR policies throughout her career.
