Hold ‘Em or Fold ‘Em: When to Pivot Your Startup

A session at Blacks in Tech at SXSW Interactive

Friday 8th March, 2013

2:30pm to 3:30pm (CST)

Pivot: the moment where startups change or die. In the search for a viable business, there comes a time when a drastic shift is necessary. But how do you know when you should pivot your startup, end it altogether, or keep powering through?
Our panel of entrepreneurs have started businesses and survived shifts in idea, customers, and business model. Join us for a candid discussion about when and how to change direction.
Registration for the Black Founders Conference is free to all SXSW Badge Holders and only $100 without a badge.
