Product Owner @ BNZ

One of the best product courses I have done - extremely collaborative and highly engaging. Excellent content, awesome team of instructors and learning through your own product concept. Enjoyed the Cohort and meeting like minded people, an awesome stepping stone into my product journey

Jamie Dawson

Product Manager @ Paloma Ventures

This is one of the best learning experiences I've had the privilege of being a part of. If you're already in product or starting to dip your toes into product, want to expand your learning and meet people in the community - look no further than Colab.

Nikki Home

Product Manager @ Meta

A great course for all things product. I've just recently moved into a product role and this gave me a great overview of the different parts of product, the role of the product manager, what product management isn't and generally what the expectations are for the role. It has given me more confidence that I do have the skills required, I just need to think differently and really be the voice of the customer. Learning to say No is another challenge, but I can see why that is so important.


This is the second cohort I’ve done through COLAB and again it has levelled up my product career even further. I have more confidence, have a better understanding of the full lifecycle, and because of what I’ve learnt, I’m actively applying it to my current role to move the needle on how to do product more effectively.
