Product Sense: PM for a startup question

If in a product sense question, if the prompt is that you are a PM at a startup instead of a PM at Facebook - in that case, how do you define the mission and goal for the startup? Is that something that you can expect the interviewer to provide?

Can you please help with the narrative to follow in the interview for the Mission/Goal section of the framework for these type of questions? (example: you are a PM at a startup. Building something related to travel)

Sure. At Facebook specifically, it’s nearly almost always from the perspective of Facebook, but if it’s not my recommendation is to pick a large/generic goal, like “Help people travel”. It’s less effective than being able to connect it to a broader Facebook mission but again an uncommon situation.
