    This isn't fluff material. The pace of the class was perfect enough to give us time to apply the actions in between each session. As a young company, you probably don't have a lot of resources to throw around, but this is a course worthy of the investment.

    Craig put on a great course, I enjoyed his lectures, the guest speakers, and all of the material was fantastic. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking to level up their growth skills.

    The hour I spent every week in Growth University easily saved me 10-20 hours of trying to figure things out on my own, and likely getting wrong the first time around. I can't recommend this course enough for all founders who want to nail their growth strategy without reinventing the wheel.

    Growth University helped us SAVE TIME and TRACK THE RIGHT METRICS at Postcard. We picked up signals and made a critical pivot (within weeks). Craig is a great teacher and I highly recommend this course for anyone with an MVP in market and in search of Product Market Fit.
