We are excited to host Box Chief Product Officer Jeetu Patel who will share his "10 Lessons on How to Scale Your Product."

1. Pick the right problem to solve
2. Think 10x
3. Build experiences people love
4. Obsess about product-market fit
5. Retention drives growth
6. Don't ignore the marginal user
7. Define core organizational unit (PEAPOD)
8. Hunger & curiosity trump all else
9. Half life reduces dramatically in the digital age
10. Purpose matters

As Box CPO, Jeetu advises CEOs from startups and Fortune 500 companies on the importance of digital transformation. Whether you are just getting started in product management or an experienced product leader, these lessons are applicable for product teams at organizations at any stage or size.

Join us for dinner, a great talk, and inspiring conversations.
