Yukon University’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) team built a program with the mandate to “save Yukon businesses.” Within four weeks, I&E launched PIVOT, a program that matched expert advice/coaching with financial contributions that enabled businesses to quickly pivot and offer their services in new and/or altered ways. Within just 12 weeks this program accepted 75 businesses which then began the adapting process in ways that not only helped them survive COVID-19 impacts but reboot and grow towards recovery.
