Our Mission:

We provide startups a new space for critical feedback, ideation, and improvement of their products. Each month an audience of product managers, designers, and founders gather to learn valuable lessons and insights from experienced product owners as they dive deep into the challenge, success and failure of product design. This is no demo or pitch, rather it’s an open examination of how you execute an idea. 

That… and we always have plenty of beer and good snacks!

September’s Theme: LOST, Now What???

1. Networking opportunities for startups/agencies to chat with experienced product managers and designers about their projects will take place between 7-7:30 PM, 8-8:30 PM, and 9-9:30 PM.

2. Startup Deep Dive @7:30 PM: How do lost items get returned to their owners? 

3. Product Design Fireside Chat @8:30 PM: We’re excited to have KeyMe discuss their design process around their awesome key making kiosks and super high tech mobile app. With KeyMe, you and your friends will never get locked out again!!!
