What is growth?

Growth is a unique function, distinct from both product and marketing. It aims to drive the success of a product by focusing on attracting customers, nurturing their loyalty, and encouraging them to share their positive experiences.The approach must consider the whole customer journey, from initial awareness to long-term advocacy, blending elements of marketing, engineering, product development, and sales. It encourages businesses to adopt a cross-functional perspective and foster collaboration between teams. This in-turn ensures that product features, marketing messages, and customer experiences are cohesively designed to amplify growth.Growth encourages the use of data-driven methodologies and experimentation to find the most effective ways to scale. Moreover, this growth-centric approach embeds a culture of agility and adaptability, allowing businesses to pivot based on data insights and market feedback, which is especially important when navigating the early stages of scaling.

How can I help?

I’ve worked in growth positions at technology businesses for the past twelve years. During this time I’ve helped many startups to launch products, acquire users, increase revenue and raise capital.As a consultant and freelance growth specialist, I now help startups from pre-seed stage onwards and work with venture builders within larger corporate environments. I also mentor early-stage founding teams through the Launch Lab Accelerator at City, University of London.
