Whether you’re working in a for-profit or not-for-profit, as a socially motivated product person you care about making the world a better place.

This meetup is about the challenge of defining product metrics that allow you to optimise the social impact of your product.

** SPEAKERS** who will be giving short talks (STARTING > 1930)

Mursal Hedayat - Founder at
Matt Kepple - Founder at
Rachel Kettlewell - Digital Manager at Esmee Fairbairn Foundation

We will be discussing questions like:

> What in-product metrics do product managers use as a proxy for longer term social impact measures (that might be measured outside the product)?

> How do you make sure that social impact measures can stand up to revenue and growth metrics in prioritisation discussions?

> What do funders look for to give them confidence that an early stage product is generating positive outcomes?
