In five years, predicts Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, “more than half of the top-500 publicly traded companies are going to have a chief community officer.

Companies will be relying more heavily on designing products with their communities because that’s one of the best ways to remain competitive and win the market. By actively engaging your community in the product-building process, you’ll have a stronger pulse on what they need. And they in turn will become champions for your product. 

Join Mark & Nathan for a free sixty minute workshop breaking down everything we’ve spent years learning about how to build your community to power your product’s growth.

We'll tackle the following:

  1. ​Why do you want a community around you as you build your product?

  2. What is community-driven product management?

  3. ​How do you create a vision that’s community-centric?

  4. What does success look like?

  5. How do you map out a roadmap to find your first 100 early evangelists
