Leading a Startup in a Down Economy - Are You Ready?

William Sahlman Eric Paley

Join Eric Paley, Managing Partner at Founder Collective, and William Sahlman, Professor at Harvard Business School, as they host an invite-only dinner of successful tech leaders in Boston.


We're in the midst of the second longest economic expansion in US history, and if the bull run continues until July 2019, it will make history. But what if it doesn't?


What if sovereign wealth funds stop backing startups, or if US regulators pursue anti-trust cases against the FAANG companies? Any number of black swan events could put the brakes on the startup ecosystem - how can founders prepare?


Do you need to pivot to profitability if the NASDAQ drops 20%? Who are your most likely acquirers? Join us for an evening of discussion, and a little disaster prepping, just in case things turn down in the near term. We promise to sooth the anxiety with good food and drink.
