What problem
does the simulator solve?


Reading about product management and going through theory-based courses can be interesting. But it won’t help you acquire the key skills you need to be effective in a product role. The only way to learn product and growth skills is through practice.

However, there are limited opportunities to do that. Top companies with strong product and data culture usually expect candidates to already have the required skills set. Most other companies do not have experience or time to invest into your development.


That’s why we built this immersive simulator where you can learn by doing. GoPractice puts you in a high-pressure role of growing a VC-backed startup in a safe environment. You will go from an idea to a valuable product that can be scaled.

Along the way you learn to diagnose and solve typical product and growth problems by using data, experimentation and qualitative research. You will work with real data in leading analytics tools like Amplitude and Sensor Tower and make decisions. While going through this, you will crystallize new skills and go deeper with help from Sean and Oleg.

Who will benefit
from the simulator and how?

Switch into product from marketing/engineering/design/consulting

The program covers all stages and typical challenges of creating a product from scratch. You will build and master actual skills by working with real data in leading analytics tools like Amplitude, making product and growth decisions, and learning from your mistakes. Simulation is the most effective way to learn the skills you need for a product role.

The study plan

The study plan covers all stages of work on products, starting with the idea, and continuing through the launch, the stages before and after finding value, scaling, marketing and product growth.

Fill in the blind spots and bring together all the pieces of a product’s journey

The simulator touches upon all of the main stages of building a product or a feature. You will structure your knowledge and learn to identify your current position and the steps needed to move the business forward.
