On January 25, 2017, Morten Elk and the SimpleSite team have welcomed their guests to the seventh edition of Nordic Growth Hackers at Founders House in Copenhagen. Created and hosted by Morten Elk, the founder and CEO of SimpleSite, the event brings together the local top talents in tech business and marketing to share their amazing stories about growth hacking—the tools and ideas, the tests and experiments, the ups and downs of what it takes to really make a business grow and outline blueprints for future growth strategies.

In his keynote speech, Morten Elk argued that “Very often, you create the customer by actually figuring out ‘where do I find them?’ And what kind of business model do they enter so that it’s valuable enough that I can afford getting more customers? It’s very often up here that you actually scale a business.” This has, in fact, been the underlining theme of the seventh edition of Nordic Growth Hackers. 

To answer such questions, Nordic Growth Hackers has featured an outstanding lineup for this edition. David Helgason from Unity, Asbjørn Malte Søndergaard from Tactile Entertainment, Janek Borgmann from Penneo, Morten Ebbesen from Siteimprove, Martin LeBlanc Eigtved from Iconfinder, and Gert Sylvest from Tradeshift have guided the audience through growth stories that reveal the importance of getting things right.
