This month Mattan Griffel will be joining us to speak about Growth Hacking.

About the talk:
A growth hacker is a hybrid of marketer and coder, one who looks at the traditional question of “How do I get customers for my product?” and answers with A/B tests, product optimization, referral, email marketing, and onboarding.

Some of the most successful startups of all time have used growth hacking techniques to grow products up to millions, 10s of millions, and in some cases 100M+ users, including Facebook, Mint, Dropbox, Zynga, Twitter, Pinterest and Quora.

This talk will cover the strategies growth hackers use and highlight some of the most successful growth hacks of all time.
