Last week I released My Product Management Toolkit open source for all to enjoy. It is a Trello Board where I have curated the most popular tools I use when creating and developing software products as a non technical operator. All feedback is welcome.
Considering creating a 6 week course after working hours to provide a step by step in going from idea to MVP to first 10 customers and sharing all the funding routes available between bootstrapping and VC. Let me know if you would be interested in this (shortlisting potential attendees).
Visited my secondary school last week to speak to the Year 12s on pathways into startups and tech (picture here).
