Starting Up During a Downturn

Some of the best companies come out of recessions and when the market is down. This is the best time for hungry founders waiting to test their ideas and start something new.

G&W continued our Difficult Conversation series with a workshop on how to start a business during an economic downturn. Whether you are a first-time founder or serial entrepreneur, this forum replay will help you navigate the first steps you’ll need to take to start your company.

Featured speaker: Steve Kuyan, co-founder, Culina Health.

Prior to Culina Health, Steven was the director of entrepreneurship at NYU Tandon School of Engineering, co-founder/managing director of the NYU Tandon Future Labs, and co-founder/director of the NYU Center for Responsible AI. The Future Labs was the first university-based, non-equity incubator and accelerator in NYC and supported entrepreneurs in technology-specific fields, such as: artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented/virtual reality, video and virtual machines. Over the 12 years that Steven led the program, the Future Labs graduated more than 250 companies – 40 as acquisitions totaling more than $500 million – for a combined portfolio valuation of graduates exceeding $3B billion.
