At the beginning of the year, we set out to start planning our own events. While there is not a shortage of events every week in Boston, we still felt certain areas deserve more attention and conversation. Another goal that we have at VentureFizz is to pull in subject matter experts from outside the area to give us a different point of view.
Whether you are a Designer, Founder, CEO, Product Manager, or a Marketer... user experience (UX) is such a core piece to the success of any product and company. Obviously, your product needs to address a critical pain point in the market... but if your end users are frustrated... they will leave.
UX & Design doesn't get as much of the spotlight in the Boston area and that needs to change.
Thus, we are really excited to partner up with NextView Ventures for our next event:
Designing Product Experiences That Win (click here to register)
This is a free event that will be held at 6pm on September 17th at Rue La La's offices in the Innovation District (20 Channel Center, Boston). The event will include both a panel discussion and a fireside chat:
Rob Go, Co-Founder & Partner at NextView Ventures
Tom Boates - Vice President of User Experience at RunKeeper
Thos Niles - Vice President, Product & Customer Experience at Dragon Innovation
William Smith - Creative Director, InsightSquared
Then... we are really excited to have a fireside chat discussion with Devin Flaherty, the SVP of UX at Fab.com in NYC. As you might know, Fab.com is a major eCommerce success story which has raised $336M to date, with over 600 employees globally. If you have ever shopped on Fab.com, you know how innovative they are around UX & design and how deeply rooted it is within their site.
Devin joined Fab.com almost two years ago, after working at Where.com in Boston to move to NYC. Richard Banfield, the CEO & Co-Founder of Fresh Tilled Soil will be leading the discussion with Devin.
