Every startup business reaches a point when the best laid plans go awry. Sometimes it may be possible to recover, but on other occasions the only course of action is to admit defeat and re-strategise.
When you've spent months or years building your tech company from scratch, accepting that your enterprise has reached a point of no return can be incredibly tough. On this episode of the Business of Engineering podcast, we talk to entrepreneurs about their experiences of pivoting, rebuilding and achieving success from the ashes of a perceived failure.
