Product Ideation & Validation

Headstart's Startup Saturday is a monthly meetup designed to help early stage Entrepreneurs with their startups. With presence in 20+ cities, Startup Saturday is the only event in Calcutta that is happening for the past 7+ years on Second Saturday of every month. Register here: and book your pass for the next edition of Startup Saturday. 


At the intersection of User Experience, Technology and Business lies the complex science of Product and its Management. The head needs to be above the water from the sea of opinions and ideas of features, users, stakeholders and insights to have a formidable outlook on the future.


To combat this and help our fellow entrepreneurs, the theme for the August edition is Product Ideation & Validation. This edition will see founders, product managers, and investors come in and talk about their experience of the product cycle, sifting through the noise of insights and feedback on features, prioritizing modules amongst many other things appearing in the life of a product.
