Every quarter, we get together with interesting startups to hold our Growth Hackers Zurich meetup. On 19th of February we held our first meetup of 2020, where we listened to exciting growth cases from growing startups, as well as conducting a lively growth hacking expert panel discussion.

Our event was fully booked, and over 100 people joined us for our meetup.

We have put together a podcast recording of the meetup, and are also able to share with you the presentation documents from each presenter. So if you were unable to join us (or even if you were), you can still learn and gather some useful insights. And don’t forget to sign up to our meetup series and keep a lookout for upcoming events, we’ve already announced our next meetup coming in June.
