Pivots are an integral part of the entrepreneurial process. Whether you’re pivoting in the early days because you haven’t yet found product-market fit, or you’re switching industries entirely, if you want to become and stay successful, you have to pivot.

In this Entrepreneurs Ugly Talk, we invited founders and leaders who have made sharp turns in their entrepreneurial journeys and came out stronger and even more resilient than ever.

Join the talk!  Find out how they did it, and how they can help you pivot and thrive.

Boatloads of value. Free to register & attend online. A chance to ask your question.
