This was a talk I delivered as part of the CTO/ CPO Summit at the annual Sequoia Hackathon (9th to 11th September 2016). It covers the core, process and people skills that help individuals become effective product managers.
Hiring product managers at early and seed stage startups is a difficult process. This deck is an attempt to create a reference guide for startup founders who are looking to hire their first PMs. This was delivered at the “Seed to Series A – Making the Leap” event organised by SAIF Partners on 11th May 2016. I am also adding the transcript of the talk below the slide deck.
