I was very excited and honored to present a 3-hour workshop at the Viterbi Hacker House at USC, which is where I went to college, around growth hacking and marketing for startups. Always fun connecting with students and being able to give back to my school.

We answered:
Is growth that important?
What is growth hacking?
How do I get started with marketing and growth hacking?
How do I prioritize everything?
What is product/market fit?
What is the customer lifecycle?
Why do growth hacks fall into either acquisition, activation, retention, revenue, or referral buckets?
What are growth hacking and marketing examples from work?
What are 100+ examples of growth hacks at each stage?
How can they implement some of these today? Including onstage breakdowns of USC companies, including EnvoyNow.co and Bezalel.co
