CEO Will Price is speaking at the upcoming Xconomy Forum: The Power of the Pivot on December 4th in Palo Alto. Will will be taking the stage with other entrepreneurs, startup gurus, and investors at this half-day event to discuss the how, when, and why of pivots. Join us for a half-day full of stories about pivots that worked (and a few that didn't).
The event will cover:
- What's the right time to change your product or your business model—and what are the ingredients of a great pivot?
- What's the difference between a product pivot, a business model pivot, and a whole-company pivot?
- Can a startup pivot too frequently, or too many times?
- How do you hold on to your higher purpose through a pivot?
