Product Council NYC - Holiday Edition!
Wednesday, December 18, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Join fellow product managers, designers and founders this coming December (12/18) at Pivotal Labs!
Product Council's mission is to provide startups with the opportunity to solicit critical feedback from experienced product managers and designers. Our event centers around good product management practices. It's more about understanding the problem a product will solve, the market it will serve, and the value it will deliver.
We have opportunities for our Council of Product Experts to deep dive into one preselected startup and a lot of time for other startups to ask questions from our teams of experienced product managers and designers. That... and we always have plenty of beer and good snacks!
December Theme: Holidays!
Event will be from 7-9:30PM with time broken up as follows:
1. Networking opportunities for startups to chat with experienced product managers and designers about their projects will take place between 7-7:30 PM, 8-8:30 PM, and 9-9:30 PM.
2. Startup Deep Dive #1 @7:30 PM: We'll be showcasing Gillian Morriss's startup that solves the holiday travel issue of how to find the best deals on travel to places you actually want to go!
3. Startup Deep Dive #2 @8:30 PM: We'll be showcasing John Havens' startup that solves the New Year's resolution issue of how to find and quantify the activities we do that make us happy and fulfilled!
