Last week, TheVentureCity held its second edition of Product-Led Growth Week in conjunction with Wayra and BStartup. More than 200 startups from 30 countries applied to become a part of this learning experience, where for a week, we put the expertise and technical knowledge of our team in the hands of selected founders and startups from around the world.The week focused around practical workshops on Product-Led Growth, a method of approaching growth that seeks to turn a startup’s product into its main catalyst of growth and its best asset. During the week, members of TheVentureCity served as mentors to the startups, hosting sessions on each of their areas of expertise from product strategies and growth tactics to user acquisition and fundraising.
"We are excited to see more than 200 early-stage startups so interested in the topic of Product-Led Growth. I wish I had learned about this before starting my first startup ten years ago, but I had to learn it the hard way. That's why we are very happy to give the opportunity to all of these founders to access top talent from great tech companies, to learn from our previous startup experiences, and see how product can be the main driver of growth. Hopefully, it will help all of them build even better companies" says Fernando Dal Re, VP Product-Led Growth Program EMEA at TheVentureCity.
