Surviving the Pivot

Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn

Serial entrepreneur Reid Hoffman says almost all successful startups will at some point reach the critical moment of pivot. Hoffman refers to these as “valley of the shadow” moments, when everyone on the early team wonders, “why did we think this is a good idea?” Hoffman uses examples from his experiences at PayPal and LinkedIn to share how a team pulls through these moments and hopefully avoids the death of a startup.
