Our vision realized - sustainable growth 

Growth Marketing is hard work, and unfortunately, there's a lot of bad information out there about how to do it right. The reality is that there is no perfect growth playbook that can be applied to every company - growth is an iterative process that is unique to the company, product, market, and type of business trying to achieve growth. 

There is no quick fix or shortcuts with growth, and growth only happens when startups realize that in order to grow, they need to put in the work to make it happen.

After founding multiple companies, and working with or advising over 100 others, founder Craig Zingerline realized he was seeing the same growth mistakes being made over and over again. Because of this, he decided it was time to apply his pragmatic and deep experience running and growing startups to a larger group of companies - thus Growth Minded was born
