About this event

Welcome to the SF chapter of the Slack Platform Community!

We're kicking off our first ever community-led Slack event,
with lightning talks from founders who took their Slack app from conception to launch.

Each speaker will take us on their journey in the Slack space:

  1. Build an idea into a product
  2. How to define your niche
  3. How to get your first customer
Bonus: how to get featured on the Slack Marketplace

After, we will have have a short panel with questions from the audience.

There will be opportunity to network and share with other makers in the Slack community. We can't wait to meet you!

We want to hear from you

This is the first official event for the SF chapter - we'll spend some time getting your feedback about what you want to see in future events!
