    Are you working on developing original research around the topic of entrepreneurial well-being and want feedback from experts in the field? Please consider attending a special research forum dedicated to research on entrepreneurial health and well-being.
    This event is hosted by Tim Michaelis (Northern Illinois University) and Maija Renko (DePaul University) and will be held at MATTER, a healthcare accelerator in downtown Chicago. The morning session (8:30-1:30p) of this research forum will be dedicated to advancing research on entrepreneurial well-being and the afternoon session will be open to the public and will have three panels to discuss entrepreneurial well-being from diverse perspectives (e.g., Angels, VCs, Banks, Accountants, Lawyers, Healthcare Payers, Non-profits, among others). The goal of this forum is to advance research and integrate practitioners' ideas into the development of well-being research in the field of entrepreneurship.
