Bain Public to lead an expert workshop in collaboration with Front Row Ventures

(Montreal, Canada) – Paul Ortchanian, Founder, CEO, Head of Product, Data and Strategy of Bain Public, will be leading a workshop on Saturday, June 27th, as part of Front Row Venture’s newest initiative: The Women’s Founders Project. An effort made to help bridge the gender diversity gap in the venture capital and tech industries in Canada.
Paul’s unique experience brings together the necessity of great engineering and the beauty of product strategy. With this, he has identified an actionable process that enables him to offer concrete messages about product management and operations.
This will be the second iteration of The Women’s Founder Project, which seeks to support female-identifying students on their path to founderhood. A cohort of 16 students will participate in four different workshops that range from business model canvas to product/market fit, fundraising & legal, and storytelling for entrepreneurs. There will also be masterclasses and one-on-one mentorship sessions for a month in hopes of connecting these aspiring founders directly with already successful entrepreneurs and industry professionals to build a stronger community of like-minded individuals in the tech industry.
During his workshop, Paul will focus on how to establish the overarching product mission that defines product strategies. He will be using concepts such as product roadmap, BHAG, value proposition, and product mission to create product strategies that properly align decision-making with the real purpose of the product. This allows decision-makers and stakeholders to have a clear and common goal and has proven to be a process that solidifies a product’s success. Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in Bain Public’s 12-week program for better product leadership free of charge thanks to the Quebec government’s PACME program.
