This weekend, Venturesity is hosting a special event that has us all super excited! We have teamed up with UpGrad to bring you a Product Management Mini Conclave that will see the participation of product management gurus. Held on the 28th of May, 2016, the conclave will aim to demystify product management. It will also encourage budding professionals to embrace this exciting and rewarding line of work.
A few months ago, Venturesity declared to the world that we were moving beyond the tech realms. We recognise that while technology has now become an important ingredient in creating successful businesses, there is plenty of non-tech talent that also makes worthy contributions. And, of course, we were pleased when we found a friend in UpGrad.
An online higher education platform, UpGrad provides industry relevant education programs. These programs are put together in collaboration with industry leaders and a world-class faculty. So, whether you are professional or a student, you can pick up a quality education from anywhere in the world.
Now, UpGrad is all ready to launch a brand-new Product Management program. And given our mutual interests, we decided to team up with them as they unveiled the programme. The evening will see experts from top companies like Ankur Sharma from Goibibo, Sanket Gupta from Google Maps, Anish Tripathi from BookMyShow, Manish Jethani of Grofers, and Pramod Agarwal from Oracle, participate in a lively discussion. What will they discuss? Well, they will look to shed light on Product Management by sharing their experiences. They will also highlight the product management landscape in India and the opportunities that it offers.
This conclave is important because it is looking to address the shortage in talent in the product management industry. The past few years has seen product management emerge as a key aspect in the building of a business. After all, the product manager is the one that drives the product and makes it consumer-worthy. And yet, there are very few who want to take up product management. At the conclave, the most successful of product managers will hopefully change your mind as they share the details on making a successful and worthy career in this field.
After the discussion, Ronnie Screwvala, the founder of UpGrad, will take the stage. He will give you a few tips on how to transition into a Product Management role without signing up for an MBA course. The much-awaited product management course will then be launched and you can spend the rest of the evening networking with industry experts.
So, are your ready to start off your journey into the world of product management? If yes, log on here.
