Event Details

Sponsored by:




Every startup wants to create a product/service that produces the highest amount of revenues and the largest following. The challenge is that business is not all sunshine and rainbows. Business is full of challenges, potholes and curves in the road. Pivoting your startup around these obstacles will give you a higher probability of being successful.

Pivoting is defined as reacting to change. Change in any business, small or large, is inevitable. Thus, those startups that understand how and when to pivot have a greater likelihood of being successful than those who don't. Learn how and when to pivot at this upcoming and ground-breaking event. Learn from those who have already mastered this art and who are committed to your success.

  • pivoting in every aspect of your business
