Introducing and scaling your Product Team from startup to market fit.

Continuing our start-up series we will ask folk who have been there, running start-ups, when they knew they needed a product manager in their organisation. Our panel of speakers will talk through this experience and then take questions from the audience, with a few juicy ones thrown in from myself (Liz).
