Building and starting a growth engine.

Desifer Growth Lab is focused on one thing: acquiring and retaining customers by building and starting a growth engine for your company. It’s not a classical broad-topic acceleration program for startups. 

Desifer Growth Lab contains part training, part hands on help in finding growth opportunities, selecting the right tools and defining your first experiments, and then running a few of them together with us. On top of this we will work continuously on your growth engine and the processes that makes it spin.


Online startups and smaller companies

with focus on e-commerce, consumer apps or SaaS

To get the best value out of Desifer Growth Lab, you should have a strong ambition and potential to grow your customer base. Since Desifer Growth Lab is about  hands on experimentation to find growth opportunities, you need the following: 

  • 1
    Clear product market fit and an existing customer or user base.
  • 2
    Scalable technology and access to development and design resources.
  • 3
    Access to user and transaction data that we can work with together.

What you get

A unique combination of training, coaching and doing.

More than 168 hours of advice and support from top growth experts*

Week 1

Knowledge to build and run a growth engine

You will learn the proven actionable frameworks so that you can build and then run a  powerful growth engine for your company. These frameworks and growth best practices cover the core elements from acquisition and conversion to retention, user psychology and habit formation. 

Help to select the optimal tool set

We will help you select and kick-start an optimal tool set for your growth efforts, reducing your time to search and evaluate products from approximately ten thousands companies, not counting up and coming martech startups.

Defined and kick-started experimentation

The faster you get to experimentation, the faster you will find growth. We will help you, based on analysis of your data, define your first most promising experiments and immediately get started with them.

Network of growth hacking practitioners

Ideas and feedback from peers are only part of the value. Together with lab personnel and external mentors, your peers will form a network for future knowledge and idea exchange.

*7 weekly sessions x 8 hours per session x 3 mentors per session in average equals 168 hours of advice and support from top growth experts. All at very affordable price.


Weekly sessions

7 full days in 7 weeks

Each weekly session is a full day during day time, where some time is dedicated to training and some to hands on work, for your company, done together with us in the lab track. 

The sessions are held at Impact hub in Stockholm as well as online for those that cannot make it physically.

In between these sessions you’re expected to complete tasks started in the lab track. The tasks are of course specific to your company.

For support, you have direct access to the Desifer Growth Lab Slack forum.
