Eureka 174: Vitruvi

Surviving a crisis

Around the world and across all businesses, we are living in difficult times. Business leaders are trying to answer a long list of pressing questions. How will our firm secure revenue to keep the lights on? How can we be nimble and reactive to the needs of our customers and clients, while also finding opportunities for growth? And will some of this uncertainty just become our new reality? We asked a few founders for advice.
