ASCENDER BUILDERS SERIES – FOR ANYONE GROWING A BUSINESS, NON-PROFIT, SIDE-PROJECT, OR INITIATIVE.

Pivoting: When? Why? & How?

Pivoting a business model can be challenging for any organization. Netflix, for example, went from mailing out DVDs to being a world-wide powerhouse for digital streaming. In a small or midsize organization, the decision to pivot can be complicated. Do you listen to a potential investor who sees your business going in a different direction? Do you listen when a handful of customers keep asking for a new widget? Join us for this session discussing when, why and how businesses choose to and survive pivots.
