Event Details

Share, Learn, Grow!

Growing Ottawa’s product and technology leadership, through shared knowledge and experience as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week.


ProductCamp Ottawa is...

…the ultimate unconference for product managers and product marketers in the Ottawa-Gatineau area. It’s the premier event for product professionals to find out the latest developments, discover new ideas, and network with their peers. Because it’s an "unconference", ProductCamp is organized by attendees, for attendees, so you can get the most out of your day.

ProductCamp Ottawa is now open for registration...and approaching fast! Only a limited number of tickets are available, so register NOW!

We're bringing you not one, not two, but THREE GUEST SPEAKERS!

"Thriving in a tempest: What we learned about product management during Klipfolio's start-up phase" with Scott Lawrence, Senior Director, Product Management & Documentation, Klipfolio

With over 20 years of product experience in the Business Analytics market, Scott is the Senior Director of Product Management & Alliances at Klipfolio, a SaaS business dashboard company.

   Today, Ottawa is quickly becoming a leader in emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles (AV), artificial intelligence (AI), SaaS (software-as-a-service), Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and next-generation networks (NGN). By facilitating collaboration amongst key stakeholders representing industry, government, and academia, an economic development organization can help drive cluster development.

Blair will provide an overview on how Invest Ottawa supported the establishment of Ottawa’s AV cluster and how it will help to stimulate the growth of future-ready companies in this rapidly expanding emerging technology.
