We know you’re a starving student, and it’s hard for you to throw down money for a conference. We get it. But believe us when we say, the connections you’ll make, the conversations you’ll have, and the advice you’ll receive at this year’s GROW Conference will more than pay for your attendance cost. (Just ask Brian Wong!)
GROW has introduced a new conference this year, and it’s built specifically for startup teams. GROWtalks is August 22nd, and it’s the new one day conference focused on how to create simple, actionable metrics, and use them to make better product and marketing decisions. Industry experts like Dave McClure (500 startups), Neil Patel (KISSmetrics), Rand Fishkin (SEOmoz), Kate Rutter (LUXr) and more, will share actionable advice with startup teams on how to improve design, product and customer development, acquisition, retention, and more.http://growconf.com/sessions/?id=6#talks (Pricing starts at $195).
The GROW Conference is Canada’s leading technology conference and is the place to hear from great speakers, and meet your future business partners, investors, and mentors. GROW has offered a special rate for students this year at $300 off! It’s more than 50% off and it’s well worth it. Register here: http://growconf.eventbrite.com/?access=ubcstudent
Note: from Faculty member, Paul Cubbon: “I attended the inaugural GROW Vancouver in 2011 and it is great event, both for content and networking. This year, Associate Dean of Graduate Programs, Murali Chandrashekaran will be attending from Sauder. If you are interested in entrepreneurship, start-up ventures and the dynamic nature of changing business innovation, then this is a great way to spend a day. I highly recommend it.”
