Back in March, we launched our Virtual Coffee Mornings series to keep conversations running throughout the South West digital and tech community over lockdown. Experienced leaders and founders from Bristol, Bath and beyond came together online to discuss the future of tech, as well as to offer advice for business development and resilience during a crisis. In case you missed the live events, we’ll be sharing stories and insights from our wonderful guest speakers over the course of the next few weeks.

Virtual Coffee Morning #5 was all about resilience and adapting your plan when things don’t go quite as you planned. We caught up with a panel of awesome founders to talk about resilience and pivoting as a startup. They include:
