Make your entire company take ownership of growth

There are companies that grow and companies like Dropbox that spawn and sprout. Many of us have always wondered if we would ever be able to take the road taken by Dropbox, to be able to reach a revenue of $1billion in the blink of an eye. The answer is growth marketing/hacking. Growth Hacking is like AI - it’s everywhere but no one really understands it. You need an expert to put things into perspective, who better than the person who coined the term “Growth Hackers”. 

In this episode, Sean will help us debunk behind the scenes of growth at Dropbox, LogMeIn, Lookout, Eventbrite, and GrowthHackers. In our conversation with Sean, we are going to decode his famous concept of growth pyramid, and deep dive into different aspects of building and scaling a fast growing company.
