Laura Roeder joins us on this episode of The Innovation Engine to talk about “the art of the pivot.” We look at some of the pivots Laura has made over the course of her career to go from Junior Designer out of college to CEO of Edgar.
Edgar’s SaaS social media product, available at MeetEdgar.com, allows users to get more mileage out of their social media posts. We also look at the types of questions the leader of a business like Edgar is considering when looking to make a big change in pricing, as recently happened with MeetEdgar.com. On a more micro level, Laura talks about how frequently changes are being made to the end product at MeetEdgar and how involved she is – or isn’t – in those decisions.
