DESIFER GROWTH LAB

Build and start your growth engine

Desifer Growth Lab is an online program focused on one thing: acquiring and retaining customers by starting a growth engine for your company. It’s not a broad-topic acceleration program for startups, it’s a hands-on training and experimentation lab focused on growth.

For e-com, B2C apps or SaaS companies with a strong ambition to grow

  • Clear product market fit and an existing customer or user base.
  • Scalable technology plus access to development and design resources
  • User data to conduct weekly experiments

Desifer Growth Lab consists of training and doing, to help you actually grow your customer base. In fact, we are so sure of your satisfaction that we offer 100% money back guarantee if you’re not. By the end of the program, you will have:

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 practices cover the core elements from acquisition, conversion, retention, user psychology and habit formation.

We will help you select, and kickstart an optimal toolset for your growth efforts, reducing your time to search and evaluate products from approximately 10 000+ companies.

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. You will also be left with a blueprint as well of experiments to continue with after the program.

Every company’s growth need is different. We only accept 8 companies to our Lab program in order give you the time and personalized advice your company needs. 

The entire afternoon of our program is dedicated to giving you individual advice. This amounts to 7 weeks x 4h Lab sessions x 2 mentors = 56 hours of personalized advice for your company. Very cost efficient in contrast to hiring growth consultants.
