About Shardul

I'm a serial product innovator, entrepreneur, and product management executive. I've founded two startups, and have been in product management roles in small growth companies and Fortune 100 enterprises in healthcare, financial services, consumer product protection, digital payments, SaaS products, as well as the U.S. federal government. I founded ProductCamp DC, and grew it to become the largest networking community for product professionals in the Mid-Atlantic U.S. I've mentored and coached product managers and entrepreneurs in numerous forums, am a frequent speaker, and run a popular blog at http://streetsmartproductmanager.com.

I'm creating a startup whose mission is to help product innovators succeed.

Product Manager is one of the most valuable jobs in the world. Personally, we believe it’s the best job in the world! And every year, more companies are establishing product management teams and more folks are entering the profession across the world. This is awesome.

They come from varied backgrounds and work in a variety of industries. But their goal is the same: Drive forward product innovation. Generate results. Be rockstars.

These product managers have a continuous desire to improve their skills. They want to get better. They’re looking for applied best practices, real-world strategies, and actionable tactics that they can apply immediately to help them accelerate their skills and achieve their goals.

That’s where we come in. We’re building courseware that goes beyond academic theory and outdated one-size-fits-all frameworks, and teaches the latest proven methodologies and provides practical tools so these product innovators can be more effective in their jobs and make the world a better place.

Which brings me to... YOU! We’re looking for our first marketing person to help us explain what we do, and build the engine to create traction and drive scale. If you’re looking for an opportunity to build a world-class growth engine from scratch, this is the job for you.
