A fresh outlook to a new year with Snakes, Socialising & Startups

So the year has started and it’s the year of the Snake if you follow the Chinese calendar, which is associated with wisdom, esoteric knowledge and spiritual discovery. A good match with our Product Maven’s mantra!

So we thought it would be nice to kick off our first meetup in 2013 with some socialising, some insights from you (our members) on what you’d like to discover, as well as invite some companies to talk about what its like to fund and build your own product management related startup.

Socialise

We’ve reserved tables at The Eight Restaurant in Market City where we'll socialise over a chinese banquet (approx. $20 - $30 per head) and pick your brains for future Product Mavens topics of interest.

THE EIGHT RESTAURANT - www.theeightrestaurant.com.au

Drinks kindly sponsored by Brainmates.

Starting a Startup

We’ve also invited two guest companies along to join us at the dining table and talk through their product related start-up stories.

Michael Dijkstra & Kevin Nguyen from Storyberg www.storyberg.com pitched their idea to Startmate against 200 others and gained seed funding for their product, Storyberg, which helps product people track metrics that really matter, stay more accountable, and build products that succeed.

Adrienne Tan, Founder of Brainmates www.brainmates.com.au, is well known across our industry as an advocate for product management. Adrienne will share the story of how she launched a product management consultancy to help business’s large and small learn and refine great product principles.
