ProductCamp Yerevan (PCY) is the first and the only unconference for product managers, product marketing managers, entrepreneurs and others with passions for product, online and IT, in Yerevan, Armenia. ProductCamps are held regularly all over the world.
The PCY 2013 took place at TUMO Center for Creative Technologies, and hosted 250 participants, which is an impressive number for Yerevan. The keynote speaker was Wouter Blok from Google (Industry Manager Travel).
PCY 2013 was a huge success, it was supported by many local and international companies, and spread the word about the developing product community in Yerevan. During the full day event 250 young professionals and seasoned entrepreneurs were discussing topics varying from starting a company to exit strategy, from legal issues to entering the American market, from SEO to behavioral marketing, from developing an MVP to Agile, and others.
Despite ProductCamp being annual event series we did not have PCY 2014, however the PCY 2015 will only be 2 months late. We plan doing it in mid February or early March. We believe growing the product community in Armenia is our country’s future’s guarantee, and we should do it together.
Why is it important?
Because there are smart people in Armenia, who can create and want to create, and they need guidance. We have strong leadership in many Armenian tech companies and startups, and as new graduates look for job and new tech companies come to exist, the need for mentorship and evangelists arises.
What will it give to the community?
The PCY is one of the initiatives that brings together product managers and marketers, online concept developers and business owners from technology companies and other innovative businesses, with a single goal of fostering and growing the product community in Yerevan.
How is it done?
Most of the event and all of the sessions are held and run by the participants. The general process is supported by self-organized volunteers.
