Today we announce the launch of Startup Product Asheville. San Francisco meets Asheville to help build a strong network of Startup Product People.
Startup Product Asheville welcomes everyone passionate about product excellence, regardless of title, industry, or stage of growth, to come together to share, learn and talk about what it really takes to produce products that people love and how to build sustainable businesses and revenue streams based on product excellence.
Let’s build a vibrant Silicon Mountain startup community!
Everyone is encouraged to contribute their point of view, workshop their product dilemma, share their lessons learned in the process of shepherding products from idea to inception to build to launch and beyond. We need a place where all perspectives and orientations of what the product requires are welcome. Everyone who sheds light on specific areas that are essential to product excellence are welcome to present and contribute to the conversation.
There is a lifecycle that every product, startup, idea and project passes through to be realized. Focusing on where the product is in its lifecycle enables a conversation that brings us all together on what will serve the product most to arrive at product/market fit, sustain growth and generate revenue streams.
We welcome people from all disciplines and stages of product evolution:
Founders, funders, CEOs
Product Marketers, Agile Marketers, Growth Hackers
Customer Support & Service
And anyone who loves to talk, build and think about products!
Come share what you’ve learned and learn from others about the art AND discipline of all the facets involved in the process of breathing life into a product, managing actionable goals and producing scalable businesses…
We encourage open debate so the group can learn from us and each other. StartUp Product events may be led by a guest speaker or a panel of experts ideally representative of the local community.
“StartUp Product Talks” is also a networking function. An opportunity for anyone passionate about product quality and what it takes to delight customers to come together to meet, interact, and network.
The ideal environment within which sharing and learning can flourish and complement the knowledge base for all on a peer to peer basis. We’re keen for Product People across different industries to meet up and exchange business cards. You never know where your next job offer will come from.
