1 Day Hands-on Growth Hackathons

Master the essentials of conversion optimization that top pros
use to get regular wins.

In 2016 we’ve directly mentored, advised and reviewed 100+ startups across 20+ countries. What we found was:

  • 9 out of 10 STARTUPS have a non-existing / broken / incomplete tracking and reporting framework.
  • 8 out of 10 STARTUPS are leaking performance in one part of their business.
  • 6 out of 10 STARTUPS do not have their growth foundation established.

This is when the idea of “1-Day Growth Hackahtons” was born.

Our quest: support as many startups address these “growth basics”.

What are the 500 growth HACKATHONS?
