COME SEE US SPEAK

The Ultimate Startup Pivot: Pivot from No Idea!

Techstars founders David Cohen and David Brown co-founded three companies over the last twenty-five years. They’ve seen the highs of being an entrepreneur, but they’ve also seen the lows that entrepreneurs can face. To Cohen and Brown, entrepreneurship means doing things your way. But, it never hurts to have some help. In this session, David Brown and David Cohen will dive into the advantages and disadvantages startups face when they enter an accelerator program.
