Pivot Founder and CEO Stacia Nelson made the Women in IT Awards USA shortlist for Entrepreneur of the Year. 

MINNEAPOLIS (June 9, 2022)Women in It’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award recognizes a female leader of a technology, digital or e-commerce start-up that has demonstrated excellent growth in the last 2-years with a coherent and sustainable strategy in achieving it. Judges look at demonstrations of growth (turnover, profit, employees etc.), standout achievements and customer testimonials.  

Pivot Strategies found its niche in IT communications when it first began as Nelson observed a huge gap in one critical area of employee communications — technology. Too often, IT leads at major companies had technology roll-outs planned that would impact thousands of employees, yet hadn’t even considered the communications cadence. 

Enter Pivot. Nelson realized this was the specific market opportunity — translating IT into language that the rest of the company would understand — that had a significant, long-term upside, since overall corporate tech transformation only increases its pace and importance, especially during a global pandemic.

Pivot has since seen tremendous growth and innovation in this critical area.
