Canyons present new challenges to all types of ventures. The shapes of canyons that entrepreneurs encounter shift between sectors and markets a bit. Generally they are not scalable, so you can’t just leap over these obstacles, but canyons can be strategically traversed.
Venture leaders need to refine their vision to emerge at the other side of a canyon, including being open to pivoting and iterating through difficult terrain. Entrepreneurs who succeed across a canyon have proven a growth-mindset and innovative mission that demonstrates resiliency to overcome setbacks in pursuit of providing valuable solutions to customer needs. A customer-led focus is required to navigate such challenges.
