Are your founder(s) the right type of crazy?
Go for a harrowing journey through 20 years of startups in the Canadian tech scene. From Radian6 (Exited to Salesforce.com) to Hootsuite (IPO someday eh?) and lesser-known startups such as OMsignal (Partnered with Ralph Lauren) and Veri, Geoff Anderson Ph.D. has navigated the product discipline while working with both startups and Fortune 50 corporations and even spent some time in the asylum as a founder himself.
Through storytelling and interaction, Geoff will provide tips and tools for you to carve out your space as a product leader in your startup while harnessing the creative gusto or borderline insanity. Coming out of this session you should have the tools and talk track to help push back when vision turns to delusion and gut check calls leave the realm of calculated risk and turn into pure gambles.
This is a great sanity check for when you are trying to figure out if the startup you are thinking of joining is founded by a Steve Jobs or an Elizabeth Holmes.
