Nimble Tools for New Product Development with Lois Lewis

Please join us for the February 2018 meeting of the St. Louis Product Management Group. Given that this meeting is only about a month before ProductCamp St. Louis 2018, we thought it would be good to present a “replay” of a popular session from ProductCamp St. Louis 2017: Nimble Tools for New Product Development with Lois Lewis.

This meeting will be held on Thursday, February 1, 2018 from 7-7:45pm at The Venture Cafe Gathering at CIC

Meetings are open to everyone — there is no charge to attend. See directions and details below.

About the meeting: In this session many tools for startup product development will be shared straight from an ITEN entrepreneur who has spent the last year working on a new product startup. Concrete examples will be demonstrated for market research, requirements building, team sharing and rapid prototyping. Tools presented include: Owler, NounProject, FreeMind, JoinMe, Reflector, Stories on Board, Google Alerts, Google Trends, PearlTrees, Slack, Trello, Axure, Design Sprints, Stories on Board and others.
