Growth Hacks

How do ridiculously successful software applications grow and spread to users like wildfire? Are you interested in the psychological and technical strategies needed to make this happen? In this talk, rock-star developer/founder/growth-hacker Ankur Nagpal will be flying in from NYC to share his favorite thoughts on the subject.

Ankur was the largest individual developer in the history of the Facebook platform, with 10,000 applications leveraging his work and a reach of upwards of 200 million users. He has been featured in numerous industry blogs as well as mainstream publications such as Business Week for earning millions of dollars on the social Internet. As a lifelong cricket fan and former international level athlete, Ankur headed up Product at Live Current Media's cricket.com and helped purchase the digital rights to the Indian Premier League from the Board of Control for Cricket in India for $50 million.  In the meantime, he was pursuing a simultaneous degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, and Economics at the University of California, Berkeley. Upon graduation, Ankur co-founded Leveraged LLC and consulted on user growth for a myriad leading companies in the consumer Internet space including Glu Mobile, Electronic Arts, Betable, Fremantle Media and GameDuell.

Doors open at 6:00 PM, and talk begins at 6:30 sharp.  As always, we'll provide drinks and snacks :)
