  2. 2. This guide is for anyone who: These are just tools. The framework and approach you use is probably more important than the tool itself. It's not about using a cool tool just for the sake of saying you're using a cool tool. Begin with an hypothesis and select each tool based on how it will create growth in a particular stage of your customer lifecycle. Build your growth stack together so that for every objective, you're testing a tool and measuring its impact. Note: I present multiple options for some of the recommended tools. The tool you go with will depend on your specific business goal and need. Are you looking for an easy setup process so you can get started right away? Are you an e-commerce business? What’s your budget? A range of factors and tests need to be considered before deciding on the final tool. Remember to think about your goal and the customer lifecycle. Have fun experimenting! This guide contains 7 acquisition tools you should consider for your growth stack. A couple notes before moving on: is looking to launch a new product or service, has a startup that has proven organic growth and is looking to further optimize user acquisition, has an established small business (maybe you've tested paid channels such as Facebook or Google Ads), or you simply want to learn because there's a cool push or pull funnel you've been working on for a couple weeks.

  10. 10. I'm Navi. I help purpose-driven companies solve interesting problems. My work sit at the intersection of data science, growth marketing, and software. During college I walked onto a Division I soccer program. I was also invited to a math competition at Harvard University called the Putnam Mathematical Competition. After graduating, I landed a comfy job at a large bank. After working on problems around customer satisfaction, engagement, and retention, I decided to leave my cozy job as a data scientist to pursue my dreams of building a restaurant empire. I helped build a business from the ground up focusing my efforts on marketing, operations, and customer experience. During our grand opening we had a line out the door for the entire weekend - my team would agree, it was actually pretty scary as a new business. I also quickly woke up to the harsher realities of being an entrepreneur. I didn't love it as much as I thought I would. Here's where my life changed. I decided that I was going to spend the rest of my life finding my best version. You could say, I was committed to evolving. After helping build processes and systems, I sold my equity in the restaurant. Interested in the startup ecosystem and technology, I joined a early stage venture capital firm as a Entrepreneur In Residence (EIR). Following a steep learning curve during a 18 month period - I decided it was time to go build something (hopefully) extraordinary. That brings us to now. I run a growth consulting startup called Northpeak ( We use data and software to help companies through the build, measure, learn cycle. We recently helped a startup go from 0 to $800k in 10 months. Our goal is to help build durable companies. If you're interested in chopping it up about growth tactics, product-market fit, data science, technology, self development, fitness, human evolution, meditation or you just want to bounce ideas - holler at me. -Navi My story
