Product Council NYC Inaugural Event

8/15/2013 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Our Mission:

We provide entrepreneurs and agencies a fresh new outlet for critical feedback, ideation, and improvement of their products. Each month a curated audience of product managers, makers, and founders gather to learn valuable lessons and insight from experienced product owners as they discuss three new startups. Presentations are between 7-10 minutes in length each followed by a short Q&A session initiated by our expert panel of product owners.

What makes this event unique?

As product managers, we think about the problem first, so we don't start with a demo. Before each startup can show off their goods, the expert council of three will propose solutions for the problem the anonymous startup is trying to solve. What ensues is sure to be a unique exploration of the strategic, creative, and critical thinking behind product design.

Want to demo, sponsor, or think you have what it takes to be part of our expert council?
