FailChat #1: The Pivot

Introducing the first of a series of FailChats, based on the groundbreaking FailCon: the first conference ever to focus on the ins and outs of business failure, and how to prepare.

What do Flickr, YouTube, and Nintendo all have in common?  They each went through a pivot: the act of a company drastically changing their product and/or business plan to attract a larger and/or more profitable market to avoid bankruptcy or business failure.  With proper planning, good advisers, and loyal users, it can still be an excellent way for any startup to bounce back.  Come meet and network with industry leaders, founders, and more, then join in our panel discussion on how and when to pivot, what it entails, what to expect, and more!
