For the 2020 Product Awards, there were more than 2,000 nominations! Atlas has helped us to whittle them down to the finalists for the conceive stage categories.

What does it mean to be a Conceive stage product?

For the Conceive stage products, there are four categories. They are:

  • Solve Market Problems: How do you understand the problem and the market you’re addressing?
  • Explore Solutions: How do you explore potential solutions (as prototypes) and define what is “good enough”?
  • Communicate Internally: How do you make the business case to your team, collect feedback, and refine your conception of the product?
  • Build a Roadmap: How do you sequence the product and market segments, taking into account impact, effort, and competitive dynamics?

Here are the 2020 Product Awards Conceive Stage finalists.

Special Thanks

We want to take a moment to thank Heap and Tugboat Logic, who are sponsors for the 2020 Product Awards. The ability to reward honor these products helps to show product managers the world over what the best products are that give them superpowers at each stage of the product lifecycle. We appreciate their participation in this endeavor.

Make a Difference

We’re selected a few charities to honor at this year’s Awards. They are charities that represent some of the products that matter the most: food, water, and shelter. We’ll be making a donation to each charity, as well as matching, dollar-for-dollar, every dollar raised between now and the Product Awards. Those charities are charity: water, Project Open Hand, and Miracle Messages. You can click here to donate to one or all of them and help make a difference. You can also share that post on your social channels to help spread the word!
