Reforge invites you to their event

Growth in Turbulent Times - Founder/CEO Edition

About this event

Currently, there's a lot of uncertainty around what's happening in the market. Customer behavior has changed so fast it's impossible to know what's next. As an operator, this makes it tough to make decisions, because there isn't a ton of data out there to guide our decision making.

To help, Reforge + Profitwell organized a free online event to discuss the current environment and lessons from previous downturns. We already collected a bunch of great questions from our community.

  • Should we be cutting costs? If so, by how much?
  • What does this mean for the fundraising environment? When should I raise and on what terms?
  • What opportunities are available? How should I approach the goals we previously had planned?

This event is hosted by Brian Balfour (Founder/CEO @ Reforge) and Patrick Campbell (Co-Founder/CEO @ Profitwell.) They are joined by Cyan Banister (Venture Partner @ Long Journey Ventures, ex-Partner @ Founders Fund, & early investor in Uber, Postmates, Niantic, and SpaceX), Russell Glass (CEO @ Ginger), and Elena Verna (EIR @ Reforge & ex-SVP of Product & Growth @ MalwareBytes). 

This session is completely focused on how Founders & CEOs can respond to the current market. We begin the session with a review of market data the group has put together across a number of segments and industries to help you make better-informed decisions. Following that, we answer some of the questions supplied by the community at the time of recording.
