ProductTank ( http://www.producttank.com/ ) was founded in 2010 in London and today spans cities all over the world. It is an informal meetup that brings together the local product community in each of those cities – whether they’re Product Managers, Designers, or Developers – to share their experience and knowledge. ProductTanks are always free to attend, organized by volunteers from the local product community, and supported by our generous sponsors.
For this event, 3 product-focused startup founders will share their stories.
Tamir Shklaz will share learnings from the journey through Y-Combinator, how this has shaped his thinking as a Product leader, where Strive Math is today, and what’s next 🚀.
Tamir is co-founder of Strive Math, a YC-backed startup that teaches kids mathematics through coding, in live online 1:1 classes. Tamir is also the founder of South Africa’s largest second-hand textbook marketplace, which he started and scaled while studying a full-time degree in electrical and computer engineering at the University of Cape Town.
Higgo van Biljon will focus on “Going from 0 to 0.5” - the journey from getting started to product market fit.
Higgo is the founder of FinMeUp, a financial education platform designed to empower users to take ownership of their financial wellbeing. He previously co-founded Hundle, a peer-to-peer rental marketplace, as well as Happy Hour SA, an alcohol delivery app. Outside of his entrepreneurial endeavours, he is passionate about making music, investing and adventure.
