He will teach us his model for how entrepreneurs should to rate their new business idea, and how to make those ideas a booming success.

The Utah Product Management Association (UPMA) Roundtable Luncheon is Thursday, April 14th, starting at 11:30AM. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other, ask questions, and give input to the future of UPMA. It is also an opportunity to commiserate with other product managers.

This month's topic:

ProductCamp Utah

If you are not familiar with a product camp, here is an example.

We will be meeting at China House at 177 West 12300 South, Draper, UT (facing West on 123rd South just off of I-15 toward South Jordan).

As always, there is no such thing as a free lunch, so make sure to bring your wallet.

UtahPMA meets every month for lunch on the second Thursday. Mark it on your schedule!
