Ottawa ProductCamp

 How It Works

This event is for anyone involved or interested in managing, marketing, developing, building, and/or scaling a product (software/hardware). Once a year we get together for a whole day, celebrate and share our learning in a collaborative, fun, informal, and supportive environment, we meet old friends and make new ones, and continue building and maintaining a strong product community in our city.

Join us on April 27th at The Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata, Ontario for our annual event that brings together local professionals and entrepreneurs.

At this event, YOU have a chance to:

  • Share your expertise

  • Learn from others, and 

  • Grow together with this awesome community
