PivotGuild – Inspiring Change!
“Clarity & New Direction for Entrepreneurs in Transition”
Entrepreneurs, creatives and makers… Turn market challenges into opportunities. We support you through critical changes in strategy, skills and relationships with Growth & Accountability Groups, Training, Guidance and Community-Building.
SECOND VERSE, SAME AS THE FIRST! If you were one of the 3,300+ innovators, artists and entrepreneurs who participated in Colorado’s first Maker Faire earlier this month, you were LUCKY! What an amazing experience – creatives of all ages came together to make, demonstrate and sell cool inventions and hand-made crafts and PivotGuild was there providing “Maker Therapy” for those struggling to commercialize new products. If YOU didn’t make it – or you can’t wait to do it again – mark your calendars for April 26 and sign up for the PivotGuild mailing list (top right) to be alerted to details. Maker Faire is coming to Denver!
JUST LAUNCHED! www.ImSkrappy.com. Inspired by our New Product Meetup members and our involvement with planning the Maker Faires, PivotGuild has created a new online community specifically to showcase and support makers engaged in recycling, repurposing and transforming materials into useful and artful creations. You’re invited to check out the BLOG, contribute to our Pinterest pages and “LIKE” us on Facebook to share your own work, collaborate on new projects and participate in creative contests.
IS YOUR PRODUCT MARKET-READY? Speaking of new initiatives… most of our clients have multiple products and services in varying stages of development. They are generating income from one source or another but typically haven’t penetrated the marketplace to support the pursuit of new ideas – and grow – with solid revenue flow. If you relate, take a look at our Market-Readiness Blog to get a handle on where you stand in the process. From there, we have several options to help you make progress. Contact us!
The best way to stay tuned? Make sure you’re on our email list. More to come. To your success!
