Event description

Description

// Introduction

All entrepreneurs start off with a product. It could be a mobile app, a B2B service, a WeChat Mini Program or even just a prototype. But what can an entrepreneur do to bring his product to the next stage?

If you’ve ever been caught in this position, come on down to listen to lessons in product launch from 3 different perspectives. If you are keen to continue iterating on your prototype, or to prepare your product for your first investor, or even to just learn from a startup’s experience, join us for a night of learning.

Our speakers will each host their own individual Q&A / Mentoring sessions after the talks. This will be a time for all of you with burning questions to seek advice from our experienced speakers. Please indicate which mentorship session you will be attending to facilitate our preparation for the event!

Take your product to the next level.
