One of the biggest risks for startups today isn't product, it's acquiring and retaining the right users. Developed originally for the portfolio of Quotidian Ventures, a seed-stage investor in New York City, the User Growth Bootcamp is designed with the busy Founder and growth-focused team in mind.
Instead of implementing with limited experience or spending $10,000+ a month in growth consulting fees, you'll get to make progress every week under the guidance of expert practitioners who've worked to acquire millions of users.
Who Do We Accept?
Startup founders or anyone on a team responsible for user growth.
Every Wednesday, companies will get access to a weekly workshop led by an expert such as Ankur Nagpal whose expertise in viral acquisition brought in 200M non-unique users, Conrad Wadowski of GrowHack, as well as folks who've been featured on Andrew Chen's earlier list of growth hackers to work for Ivan Kirigin (ex-Facebook, ex-DropBox) and Jamie Quint (ex-Swipely).
Each workshop session will focus on a point along your funnel (Acquisition, Activation, Retention, Referral) to help find immediate gains. We'll also brainstorm and help you prioritize unique and high-leverage approaches for your specific product, market and team.
Overall you'll get:
- Weekly instruction and practical feedback from expert instructors.
- Additional weekly office hours coaching and breakouts tailored to your team, stage and product
- Access to over $1,000 worth of in-depth courses in topics such as mobile acquisition, user onboarding and virality which walk through the latest skills in growth hacking.
- A network of domain experts, founders and marketing leads at startups to exchange information and best practices.
Instead of trying to fill a "Growth Hacker" role, a strong culture, process and set of current best practices about growth should be built into your company's DNA. For more, see this article on Stop Trying to Hire a Growth Hacker.

A few testimonials
"I previously took a 10-week program a popular education tech company in NYC. Despite the User Growth Bootcamp being 50% the price, I felt it delivered 20X the value of this program. What's different is that it's not geared towards beginners, and dives deep into processes, tools and numbers. Every class was taught by an expert, and I walked away from each class with ideas I can apply

.the bootcamp was great. The progression of topics worked well, and provided many actionable hacks we've already begin to implement and test. All the speakers were very knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend this to anyone selling anything in the digital space. Thank you.

I was concerned that the classes wouldn't fit my schedule, but I was quite pleased with the streaming option when my schedule didn't allow me to attend in person. I was surprised by the strong group of companies in the classand learned so much from their examples and input on the challenges we're facing at ListenLoop. I highly recommend User Growth Bootcamp because you'll learn working processes that you can implement TODAY that will help grow your company
