You're invited! To our first Intro : Design Sprints + Growth Hacker

This is an interactive workshop to help teams create new value for the customers they work with.

This workshop uses methodology from Sean Ellis' 'Hacking Growth' and Jake Knapp's 'Sprint', to formulate a Growth Hacking programme any team can benefit from! A Design Sprint is a process for identifying challenges, testing new (maybe crazy) ideas, for creating services or improving existing ones. It compresses potentially months of work into a few days. Growth Hacking is a process of rapid experimentation on the service and on the marketing channels to find the most efficient way to grow an Organization. Together they create a development of short and incremental cycles able to reduce the risk of the investment by quickly checking the results.

Close to 15 years ago, before entering College I tried an international development project in rural Paraguay and this little adventure helping a community find pathways to new markets became my obsession. I've now worked home and abroad with NGOs, educational institutions, and startups in cultural immersion, design thinking, e-commerce, and career development industries. Today, I'm fortunate to continue to help individuals and companies connect with new opportunities using design thinking frameworks that build awareness, creative confidence, social capital, and storytelling abilities.
