Your complete startup downturn survival guide
During a market boom, startup funding is in abundance. But when a financial crisis hits, investments dry up, making it difficult for newer, smaller outfits to survive. During a period of economic instability, that task might seem even harder. However, a crisis doesn’t have to mean it’s time to shut up shop. Restartup shows how it’s possible—by choosing to embrace instability and seizing the new opportunities it provides—to stay afloat, and even to thrive.
