"As practicing product managers and product manager community organizers in Japan, we noticed that there is a lack of training and learning opportunities for aspiring and early-career product managers. We wanted to help fill this gap and do our part to advance the product management profession by creating this free training opportunity," said Tanmay Goel, Co-Organizer of Japan Product Camp.

We’re very excited to partner with Japan Product Camp to advance this important profession in Japan", said Scott Pugh, regional vice president and general manager, APAC, at Mixpanel.
