Is ADHD really an entrepreneurial superpower? Some argue it is. And if we’re looking at many of the world’s most successful inventors and entrepreneurs – many have diagnosed ADHD. Examples including Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin and Ingvar Kamprad of IKEA to name just a few.
Many entrepreneurs have also been accredited with definite signs of ADHD, without a formal diagnosis, including Albert Einstein, Walt Disney, and Steve Jobs.
Is there a link between ADHD and super entrepreneurial people, and is everything you hear about this in the media accurate?
In Josefin Svensson’s fireside session she will be chatting to startup guru Wil Schroter, successful entrepreneur and founder of Startups.com and the Startup Therapy Podcast. And yes, both have ADHD!
Josefin will discuss how much of a superpower or hindrance ADHD can be to entrepreneurs, and shared some practical insights in coping strategies which will be helpful to anyone who has ADHD, suspect they might, or know someone who does.
