Making your business invincible in 2020 is a whole new ballgame. (Remember the adage that bars were recession-proof?) Here to walk you through it are two entrepreneurs who started their businesses during the 2008 recession—Alexa Von Tobel of LearnVest, which was sold for a reported $375 million in 2015, now founder and managing partner at Inspired Capital, and Lucy Deland, co-founder of Paperless Post and now-partner at Inspired. These two seasoned serial entrepreneurs discuss the impact of financial upheaval on launching and scaling a business and how to manage the challenges to survive.
