THIS IS WHAT OUR ALUMNI SAY ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE

The Growth Tribe Academy: How to 180 your career perspective!

I learned real practical skills, did 14 scientifically based experiments with 2 amazing kick-ass team members in a rocketship scale-up and went from smart kid with a so-so trajectory to a professional working at aforementioned rocketship-scale up. Above all, they taught me not to fear stuff you don’t yet understand (like javaScript, MySQL) and who I’d want to be in 4 years (David). Buy the ticket, take the ride.

Tom Goulooze

Lean Coach

One of the most important things you learn at Growth Tribe is the growth hacker mindset! Growth Hacking isn’t just a compilation of techniques, it’s much more a way of thinking. And it’s helping me a lot in my new position at Foodora. I also learned to apply a bunch of super powerful tools that would’ve made my life A LOT easier if I had known them before. If learning turns you on and you’re looking to up your game on the job market: this is one of the best things you can do!

Margo van der Laan

Online Marketing Manager

While I had a permanent job in Rome, I did the only “rational” thing. I packed my bags, and moved to Amsterdam to join Growth Tribe. Everything you thought you knew about marketing is obsolete. Believe me… life begins at the edge of your comfort zone. Let the Tribe Growth Hack your Life!


PS: Where I am now? Happily growth hacking for Catawiki, the fastest growing company in Europe

Andrea 

Giordano

Growth Hacker

In my search to combine online marketing with data analysis, I found out about Growth Tribe Academy. 

Six weeks later, I was ready for a rollercoaster ride with Growth Tribe. Growth Tribe Academy made me more data-driven, taught me web analytics and most importantly allowed me to meet awesome, intelligent and like-minded people. 

I was hooked on growth hacking. Growth Tribe Academy was a hell of a ride, but it made a freakin' big impact on my career.

Sjors Mahler

Growth Hacker

Located at the heart of the city, Amsterdam’s Marineterrein, 

we turned a former EU conference facility into our campus.

  • 650m2 of dedicated training space
  • Ultrafast fiberglass internet to make sure there’s nothing in the way of execution
  • Lounge & chill areas to wind down and let your learnings sink in.
