Innovator Series: The Power of the Pivot

February 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm










The Future. From Those Building It.

Over the last year we’ve experienced one of the biggest business disruptions in our lifetime, and the ability to pivot successfully has been what’s kept many companies alive.

Join us as we explore the power of the pivot with Krystle Mobayeni, CEO of BentoBox, and Rowan Trollope, CEO of Five9, and learn how BentoBox mobilized and pivoted to provide restaurants with expanded digital capabilities and support as they were forced to close due to COVID-19.

Featuring Krystle Mobayeni, CEO of BentoBox

Krystle Mobayeni is the Co-Founder and CEO of BentoBox, a hospitality platform that empowers restaurants to own their online presence, profits and relationships. Krystle founded BentoBox in 2013 after working with restaurants as a web designer, where she observed that existing technology drove a wedge between restaurants and their guests. She built BentoBox to provide technology that puts restaurants first. Under Krystle’s leadership, BentoBox grew revenue by 1,130% over three years and has maintained a 98% customer retention rate.
