Last week, we kicked off our Product Strategy Sprint Series powered by Porsche Cars North America! The 3-month program began with a networking session between the participating founders and members of the Porsche team.
As part of the networking session and the first step towards building relationships with the Porsche professionals, founders got to share their origin stories and walk through product demos. The level of enthusiasm and excitement during the networking spoke to how eager the founders were to start the program.
Product Strategy Sprint Series powered by Porsche Cars North America is a 3-month virtual program where selected founders seeking to enhance their existing products or develop new ones will receive hours of guidance from Porsche product management professionals and related functional experts.
The participating founders will experience virtual networking lunches with Porsche professionals, office hours with Porsche product experts, weekly accountability group huddles, and storytelling coaching.
Since this program was developed to give the next generation of diverse founders and social entrepreneurs in leading industries an advantage over the competition, the startup had to be in one of the following industries to qualify for consideration:
- Customer Experience
- Future of Work
- Logistics & Mobility
- Supply Chain & Manufacturing
- Big Data, Analytics, & Security
- Climate Tech & Sustainability
Several founders applied, but only 20 startups were selected.
The founders selected for the program all have products that address market needs and have the potential to gain a lot of traction with their startups. Here are the participating founders and the startups they’re building:
