Product-Led Growth

GitHub, 88 Colin P Kelly Jr. St, San Francisco, CA

We are excited to announce OpenView’s first Product Leadership Forum. We are bringing together a curated group of Product Leaders at top SaaS startups for an all-day, invite-only forum around the topic of product-led growth.

Product-led growth puts the product at the foundation of a company’s go-to-market engine, and product usage becomes the primary driver of customer acquisition, expansion and retention. This capital-efficient strategy has been the hallmark of some of the hottest SaaS companies in recent years, including Expensify, Datadog, Atlassian and Trello. Speakers and panelists will share the inside stories behind how they approach growth from a product perspective, and lessons they’ve learned along the way. Sessions include:

  • How to build high-performing teams that enable product-led growth
  • Secrets on business app marketplaces and other ecosystem growth strategies
  • CEO viewpoints on successful growth from ZipRecruiter, Expensify and Trello
  • Product-led growth strategies for early stage and late stage software products

We’re looking forward to seeing you at this year’s Forum. For questions and additional information, please contact Kyle Poyar at

The agenda and happy hour will be updated here as they become available.
