We are excited about announcing our next meetup. Apportable has graciously offered us their awesome space in SF and we have two awesome speakers lined up! Charlton Soesanto, the Mobile PM at LinkedIn and Charles Yong, a startup growth expert.
Charles Yong, Co-Founder at SFG Media Group
Charles Yong has specialized in growth analytics for the past 7 years. He co-founded K-Factor Media, where he developed many of the growth strategies that have become industry standard in the social gaming space. At K-Factor he grew social utility apps to over 150 million monthly uniques and a collection of social games to over 30 million monthly uniques without any paid advertising. He designed a simple mobile calendar app that held a top 10 paid App Store spot in the US and 129 other countries for 8 months straight, before converting to a free app that has since gained over 60 million installs across Android and iOS. At SFG, he’s designed internal tools and strategies used to grow an audience to over 70 million monthly uniques since the company’s inception in February of this year.
Charlton Soesanto, Product Manager, Mobile at LinkedIn
Over the last two years, Charlton has specialized in growing LinkedIn’s active mobile members (currently 45% of weekly unique users) with new user onboarding, viral invitation flows, and the profile. He believes sustainable growth derives from user centered design, data storytelling, and the growth mindset, which he discovered at Stanford.
