Have you thought about founding your own startup? Join us at a close-door workshop to learn how such a career change looks like.
In this session, you will gain insights in how to transform your career from product professionals into startup founders. Mengmeng will share how first-time founder vs multiple-times founder make decisions when facing challenges, how she treat and leverage this LLM trend; Guorui will share how to verify whether your startup idea is reliable or not with lowest costs, how to extract a SaaS product from the marketplace product during the scale-up stage, how the past product experience will benefit vs prevent you from being a good founder, etc. We will also have open roundtable discussions to brainstorm and participate in a few product strategies Klarity Health and Gather want to develop today.
