Founder Foresight: Prepping your Startup for 2023
About this event
What’s the economic outlook for 2023? How can this impact the startup ecosystem? What can entrepreneurs do now to prepare for what’s to come?

This year has already been a wild ride and we are only halfway through. From record valuations to signs of an oncoming economic downturn, all companies are trying to get ahead of what’s next. For startup leaders, early insight and preparation is critical to steering their companies through whatever the economy may bring.

Join Startup Atlanta for answers to these questions as we look toward the year ahead. We are thrilled to have two seasoned experts share their expertise with the Atlanta startup community. Shannon Saccocia will kick off with a preview of the future economic outlook and other macroeconomic trends. David Cummings will then break down what it means for startups and share practical advice for navigating a tricky business environment. Moderated by Burunda Prince, Startup Atlanta board member and Chief Operating Officer at Russell Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
