To Change, Pivot, or Persist

Entrepreneurs and investors love to talk about pivots that saved or elevated young firms, but hero stories about turning hay into gold don’t offer an accurate or instructive picture of how entrepreneurs wrestle with choices about whether or not to change. In this session, Professor Jacqueline Kirtley and panelists Jeff Fluhr, ENG’96, W’96, General Partner, Craft Ventures, and Andrew Friedman, WG’95, Managing Partner, Pin High Capital LLC & Founding Partner, GoodSport Nutrition, will discuss the thinking behind their own pivot decisions as well as how recent world events have led to choices to change, adapt, or persist.
