  • Testimonials From The Last Programs

    Martijn Groot - CEO Peecho

    "It was a pleasure having one of the Growth Tribe Teams on board for 3 months. The team was very motivated, they launched many experiments. We were able to learn a lot from their experiments and they left us with some great wins. In fact, we liked the approach and the vibe around the team so much, that we also joined the 2nd Growth Tribe Academy and are currently hosting another Growth Tribe team. So far, our experience with Growth Tribe has been very positive."

    Jacques Huppes - Co Founder StuDocu

    "Growth Tribe has brought a testing spirit into our company that boosted conversions with over 30% in 10 weeks time"

    Testimonials Are Usually BS We Know.. But These Are Actually REAL

    Tom Goulooze - Growth Marketing Analyst @ Usabilla

    The Growth Tribe Academy: How to 180 your career perspective in 3 months. Although I did not really know it when I signed up; joining the academy has been the absolute greatest thing I have decided to do with my time (weirdly specific youtube clips being a distant second).

    In three months 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.

    Sjors Mahler - Growth Hacker @

    So yeah, you could say I'm the odd man out in marketing land. Upon receiving my diploma, I wanted to challenge myself. In my search to combine online marketing with data analysis, I found out about Growth Tribe Academy.

    Six weeks later I was sitting in one of UvA's classrooms, ready for a 3-month 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.

    After three months 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.

    Margo van der Laan - Online Marketing Manager @ Foodora

    I think one of the most important things you learn at the Growth Tribe Academy 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.

    After the academy, I had the luxury to choose between jobs. Unfortunately, I can’t say that all ex-marketing students of my age are in the same position. In short, if learning turns you on and you’re looking to up your game on the marketing job market: this is one of the best things you can do!

    Andrea Giordano - Growth Hacker @ Catawiki

    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


    Trust us, we have a team of hardcore growth hackers who know how to pick the real talent.
    We have many requests to join the academy. About 5x too many compared to the number of seat available. So we select startups that are growing fast or that have high growth potential, that offer a great learning environment for the student to experiment and take some risks, that have some marketing budget to play around with and that have a rapid execution mentality. We prefer startups that have a test fast, fail fast approach.
    This means that the team works for 4 days a week at the startup.
    No. It’s an investment in themselves. They get paid in learnings and the liberty to experiment.
    The 6th Academy will start in February 2018. Startups will be selected beginning of December 2017.
    Yes this will start in Q3 2018
