The Counterintuitive Startup: Finding Success in Unexpected Places

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Have you ever wondered what happens when you toss out the playbook and write your own? Curious what possibilities surface when you ignore common wisdom? The Counterintuitive Startup is an interactive case study of an uncommon local enterprise: the Square Peg family of companies. What began as a husband-and-wife real estate development company evolved into a sandbox of creative ventures whose drive and innovation are making a lasting impact on lives and communities. Think nonprofits are the only entities making a difference? Think again.
