Topic: "Inventing Product-Led Growth: How PLG Went From An Idea to the Biggest Trend In Business Today."

Product Led Growth refers to a business model strategy that relies on the product as the main vehicle to acquire, activate, and retain customers. In recent years, the idea of moving a business to be “product-led” and focusing on using your product to build a growth engine has gained momentum leading to significant success. But should you make this move now?

Come meet with Product-led growth leaders who will help you understand what you need to consider when moving to become product-led and how you can leverage a product-led growth mindset to drive your company in 2022 and beyond.
