Your original idea has gone south, but you still have money in the bank. What’s a savvy startup to do? Pivot, of course. In fact, the ability to pivot successfully might just be the single greatest talent a company can have. However, there are always questions to consider:
- What’s the difference between a product pivot, a business model pivot, and a whole company pivot?
- When is a pivot justified, and when is it just a “mulligan,” to use Mike Maples’ term?
- Can a startup pivot too frequently, or too many times?
- How can you tell if you’re one of the Living Dead—a company that needs to pivot, but is afraid to?
- Pivoting is stressful—how do you ride it out without succumbing to panic?
- How do you hold on to your higher purpose through a pivot?
Join founders and startup gurus to get the answers to these questions and hear frank insider stories about successful (and unsuccessful) pivots. This event will be held at PARC—itself the product of a successful pivot back in 2002, when Xerox spun it off as a contract-research subsidiary. We look forward to seeing you there!
December 4, 2:00 – 5:00pm – PARC, George E. Pake Auditorium, 3333 Coyote Hill Rd., Palo Alto, CA 94304
