On May 31, 2018, Morten Elk and SimpleSite welcomed their guests at Founders House in Copenhagen for the eleventh edition of Nordic Growth Hackers. Created and initiated by Morten Elk, the founder and CEO of SimpleSite, Nordic Growth Hackers has become a point of reference for marketing professionals and the local tech community who take interest in the tools and ideas behind great growth hacking strategies and building successful online businesses.
It is essential to have the right product for the right customers, argues Morten Elk in his keynote speech. While most editions of Nordic Growth Hackers have focused on sales and marketing, this time focus falls on the product itself. Changes may happen more often or continuously in sales and marketing, but some companies only experience one or two critical events during their lifetime where they fundamentally need to change their product to suit their customers’ needs.
Presentations from guest speakers who work at some of the most successful businesses in Copenhagen—including Famly, Cromian, Donkey Republic, EasyPractice, Peakon, and OrderYOYO—have shown that taking risks or completely rebuilding products are always good ways to counter market, consumer, or product uncertainty. This opens the door to real breakthroughs and actions that provide the keys to delivering quick, yet sustainable success .
