Lessons in Entrepreneurial Crisis Management

RiseUp is thrilled to announce the launch of a brand-new web series to help you navigate the COVID-19 outbreak. With a roster of local and international speakers, Survive and Thrive: Lessons in Entrepreneurial Crisis Management is a bi-weekly web-series aiming to ensure we all have a better grasp of the socioeconomic impact of Coronavirus, are equipped to handle its consequences, and emerge on the other side a stronger, more agile ecosystem!

We debut the Survive and Thrive series with Blitzscaling author Chris Yeh, who will discuss whether COVID-19 will bring about the next global recession. We’ve all seen the global stock market plunge in recent weeks, but Chris will take you through how these patterns are likely to impact startups in local and regional markets. Wondering which industries will be hit the hardest and where new opportunities will arise in the coming months? Drawing on lessons from previous recessions, Chris will help you learn how startups can sustain themselves through this crisis and recover from any potential losses.
