Hi All,

On Oct. 23rd we are going into the offices of one of Vancouver's top Internet companies, Plenty of Fish. POF is the world's largest dating site and a staple of single people around the globe.

We will hear from CEO Markus Frind on how he grew a business out of his basement into the world's biggest brand in online dating and a team of over 60 people. We will discuss the challenges of successfully scaling an business based on ad revenue into a global player in the dating space.

Want to know a little more about POF before the meetup, check them out. Interested in joining the POF team? They are hiring for a number of positions.

See you there :)

    It was very good and it was well attended. Marcus has a very direct and no nonsense style. I made me think more about the value of growth hacking (http://www.slideshare.net/mattangriffel/growth-hacking). He is absolutely right when he encourages you to get your product out quickly and to focus most of your energy on tweaking and improving it.

    Awesome. Markus gave the crowd candid insights to the challenges he faced growing his company as well as solid answers to the questions asked about how individuals can overcome their own startup problems.
