We understand what it's like. But you're not alone! Our groups help you find others to keep you accountable and stay motivated on your mental health journey.
Our Shimmer Groups draw off of years of peer support and group therapy research. We believe in the power of connecting those with similar identities and experiences. Learn more about the evidence behind Shimmer Groups.
Shimmer Founder Groups are for founders interested in staying accountable to improve and maintain their mental health. Connect with 6-8 others going through daily challenges in their startups. Our expert facilitator meets with your group once a week for 60 minutes, and you'll have access to mood tracking, gratitude journaling, and community events on our custom digital platform. Together, you'll:
✨ Have a unique space to talk about the challenges and stress of being a founder with other founders.
✨ Stay accountable for improving and taking care of your well-being.
✨ Learn about your identity, emotional regulation, self-care, and work-life balance.
Our curriculum is carefully developed by a licensed mental health therapist, Sharon Kim LMHC, and an expert group psychiatrist doctor from UCSF, Amin Azzam MD.
We use a mix of theory, discussion, exercises, and support to develop meaningful connections, honest conversations, and a community you can feel supported by.
