Accelerating Out of the Curve: How startups are driving their own pandemic recovery

Featured guests:

Webinar overview:

Amidst the flurry of efforts to keep small businesses open and their workers employed, how have Maine startups been navigating the Covid-19 pandemic? To answer this question, we invited two entrepreneurs and a business professor with deep roots in Maine’s startup community to discuss today’s startup landscape and share their perspectives on the last seven months. We’ll talk about changing customer needs, pivots, access to capital, hiring talent, and how people are emerging from the first waves of the pandemic with new ideas and businesses.
