A lot to be grateful for

This time of year, it’s only natural to pause and reflect on what you may be grateful for. The truth is – we have so much to be grateful for here at Product Collective. We thought we’d share a few things that especially come to mind.

First, we’re just grateful to even exist. Seriously. To be honest, when COVID struck in early 2020, we had no idea if a business like ours could outlast a global pandemic. Yet, here we are – stronger than ever before.

We’re grateful to be getting people back together again. While we really enjoy serving product people year-round through our newsletter, the Rocketship.FM podcast, and our INDUSTRY Interview live video Q&A chats – we especially love being with our Product Collective community in person. In 2023, we’ll be holding three in-person events for the first time ever – with INDUSTRY Europe in March, the New York Product Conference in May, and our flagship conference, INDUSTRY Global, in October. And I really can’t wait to be among our product people.

We’re certainly grateful for the product leaders we’ve worked with as speakers and sponsors of our community. One of my favorite things to do is highlighting these people and companies, shining a spotlight where it’s much deserved.

But there’s one thing we’re most grateful for…


Seriously, thank you. We so appreciate you being a part of our Product Collective community and helping grow it to become the longest-running and largest independent community of product management professionals. We are so, so grateful for your support.
