Event description

Description

The product manager is known as the CEO of the product, and in a startup, the CEO often plays the product manager role. The product manager’s job is to make sure that the apps and websites being made are what customers actually want and that they have a viable commercial future. Product managers work with engineers, designers, analysts, marketers and community managers to make the digital products we are all using today.

Join us to hear from Rags Vadali, Product Manager at Facebook, to learn what product management is, how to work with PMs and how to break into this fascinating career. Rags has worked at startups, as well as at Google and Facebook, and will cover how the PM role evolves as the company grows.

Rags began his career as a software engineer, before doing his MBA at Chicago Booth and transitioning to product management. Rags is one of the few people who is great at explaining tech to business people and business to tech people. You can learn more about Rags here.

This session will be presented by Sophia Matveeva, Enty founder, Forbes contributor and Chicago Booth MBA (seen in Financial Times, Wall Street Journal etc). You can find out more about Sophia here.

Come for the knowledge and stay for the network! After the talk and Q&A there will be an opportunity to meet the community over drinks and snacks.
