We want to explore which daily habits help neurodiverse entrepreneurs thrive, and what challenges they face as a founder. 

From previous research we know that people with neurological conditions such as ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, and other neurological differences are attracted to entrepreneurship, i.e., they are more likely to become entrepreneurs, and even outperform neurotypical founders.

However, we also know that the intuitive behavior of neurodiverse entrepreneurs can run counter common work schedules in organizations.

Therefore, understanding why neurodiverse founders chose to be an entrepreneur rather than work in a company can help design workplaces that are more inclusive, and more responsive to the rapidly changing nature of work (e.g. Covid 19).

If you are a neurodivergent founder, we want to know your personal experiences:

  • What does your ideal workday/ working environment look like? 
  • Which of your own work habits help you to thrive?
  • Which working habits that are perceived as “normal” are the most harmful for your workflow?

You are invited to participate in our study

We are interested in what it is like to be a neurodivergent founder and invite you to participate in our study on entrepreneurship and neurodiversity. Our study will provide insights into how neurodiverse founders structure their work to support their needs and investigate which habits within entrepreneurship have helped or hindered their journey.

If you are interested in participating in our study, we would love to interview you online. The interview will take approximately 45-60 minutes, you can be based anywhere in the world and your participation will remain anonymous. If you agreed to participate, we will contact you to set up a time and date for the interview. 

In return, you will be provided with the results of our study.
