As Morten Elk explains in his keynote introduction, “Growth hacking typically encompasses all aspects of your business. There’s going to be PR, there’s going to be marketing, there’s going to be product, there’s going to be customer support involved in it. But, basically, finding out how to make the connections and increasing that is very valuable. Very often, in my opinion, more valuable than how or whether you found the exact market. There are a lot of optimizations that can make a lot of difference.”

The High Growth business school, the generic title of the event’s first edition, grouped presentations by leading professionals at companies such as Vivino, Firmafon, Falcon Social, Dinero, or Conferize, and covered a series of topics that took the audience through concepts, formulas, toolboxes, experiments, and strategies that have provided great results in taking these businesses further.
