PMDojo and somos announced a strategic partnership this week to empower people to succeed and flourish in the tech industry in Product roles. Together we are creating opportunities for learning and gaining industry experience in roles such as UX design, UX Research, Product Management or Software Development.
"This is an exciting partnership for somos at the perfect time! As an early-stage social enterprise, we’re still digging deep into our customers’ problems. Working with Fellows from PMDojo gives us a fantastic opportunity to move closer to product-market fit. Impact sourcing is a priority at somos and we very much support PMDojo’s efforts to make careers in product more diverse, inclusive, accessible & equal for all!” - Khawar Malik, Founder, somos
"We are so excited about partnering with somos because there is nothing that beats experiential learning. One can read all the books in the world or take countless courses. However, in order to truly learn and gain real-world experience, one has to launch a product in the market. This is such an exciting partnership as somos provides that venue for Fellows from PMDojo to be matched up with a real company to build that experience. Plus, Khawar is an amazing leader to learn from!" - Bosky Mukherjee, Founder, PMDojo
