What is ProductTank?

ProductTank was founded in 2010 in London and today spans over 20 cities with over 6,000 members. It is an informal meetup that brings together the local product community in each of those cities – whether they’re Product Managers, Designers, or Developers – to share their experience and knowledge. ProductTanks are always free to attend, organized by volunteers from the local product community, and supported by our generous sponsors.

The team

ProductTank is managed by Mind the Product, a team of product managers who spend all day building start-ups, and all night building a community for other product managers. Martin founded ProductTank, Janna and Simon co-founded and run ProductCamp London bi-annually and together we founded Mind the Product – a blog, a community and a conference.

Together with our local volunteers and curators we are driven by a passion for great products and the people who build them.

“Excellent speakers, full of passion and dispensers of hard won advice. Lots of inspiration!”

“The best forum I know about for product managers, excellent speakers and great to meet and hear from product managers in other industries and companies.“

“Excellent networking opportunities as usual and great to catch up with some really talented product people.”

Start a ProductTank

ProductTank is a trademarked brand owned by Mind the Product so unlike ProductCamp, you must have permission from us to start your own ProductTank in your city. We do this to protect the amazing brand and reputation ProductTank has built over the past few years – and to ensure a consistently great experience for all our members around the world.

Don’t worry though – we’re happy to help you start a ProductTank in your city – we’ll just make sure we think the same way about community and product management and then work closely with you to manage the quality of the group you start.

If you’re ready to take on the work of starting a ProductTank meetup in your city – get in touch. You’ll have to own finding a venue, speakers and sponsors. We’ll help out as much as we can.
