This is the presentation we made at IdeaLabs in Antwerp, Belgium, for the "Unicorns & Rainbow" conference. The main topic was growth hacking.

We wanted the audience (and you guys) to test (and improve) those growth hacks for your own businesses. Those hacks were tested during our weekly iterations here at Mention.

Enjoy :)
