Moderator: Dr. Melvin McInnis

NONFICTION

The co-founder of the menswear start­up Bono­bos opens up about the strug­gle with bipo­lar dis­or­der that near­ly cost him every­thing in this grip­ping, rad­i­cal­ly hon­est mem­oir of men­tal ill­ness and entrepreneurship.

Andy Dunn co-found­ed the ecom­merce-dri­ven menswear brand Bono­bos in 2007 and served as CEO through its 2017 acqui­si­tion by Wal­mart. As an angel investor and through his ven­ture cap­i­tal firm Red Swan, Dunn has backed more than eighty star­tups, includ­ing War­by Park­er, Oscar, and Coin­base. Dunn serves on the boards of Mon­i­ca + Andy, an organ­ic baby appar­el com­pa­ny found­ed by his sis­ter, and the tech non­prof­it Raised By Us. Named to For­tune’s 40 under 40 list in 2018, he is a grad­u­ate of North­west­ern Uni­ver­si­ty and the Stan­ford Grad­u­ate School of Busi­ness. He lives with his wife and their son in Chicago.
