About Product Collective

Product Collective was founded in 2014 as a way to help product people all over the world connect, collaborate, and generally be inspired. As product people ourselves, we found ourselves wanting to find places where we could meet other product people. We looked around and were surprised to find a lack of a product community that gathered in one place often, especially outside of Silicon Valley.

And so Product Collective was born.

Product Collective’s first initiative was INDUSTRY: The Product Conference, which initially took place in 2015. In its first year, INDUSTRY attracted 250 attendees from 21 states and 7 countries. Just one year later, attendance nearly doubled — with attendees from both years represented from larger enterprises and venture backed startups alike, including IBM, Intuit, Oracle, Shopify, GoDaddy, LeadPages, and others.

Today, Product Collective educates and connects product people in many more ways, including through Product Brief (our weekly newsletter) and Product Lunch (our monthly webinar series).

Our mission is to redefine and shape the future of product management, and it’s one that we know we can’t do alone. We hope you’ll join Product Collective to be a part of this evolution.
