Navigating the Choppy Waters of Startup Growth

Mar 10, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

There were 1035 US IPOs in 2021. Then just like that it all changed. 2022 brought only 181 IPOs, an 82.5% drop from 2021.

The fever pitch of growth at all costs has changed to "scale fast and be more efficient.” Panelists draw upon learnings as founders and operators in startups and multi-billion $ market cap companies to discuss four inflection points that could sink your startup and how to get through them.
