Two Great Events – FailChat and Flash Gaming Summit

One more quick events post. Two of my friends are organizing events that I think are both interesting and worthwhile – check them out if you can:

FailChat #1: The Pivot
March 3rd, 6:00pm – 9:30pm
PariSoma
What do Flickr, YouTube, and Nintendo all have in common? They each went through a pivot: the act of a company drastically changing their product and/or business plan to attract a larger and/or more profitable market to avoid bankruptcy or business failure. With proper planning, good advisers, and loyal users, it can still be an excellent way for any startup to bounce back. Come meet and network with industry leaders, founders, and more, then join in our panel discussion on how and when to pivot, what it entails, what to expect, and more! Tickets available at http://thepivot.eventbrite.com 10% off with code “Hudson.”
