WSJ – ‘Growth Hacking’ Helps Startups Boost Their Users

Logo-for-the-Wall-Street-JournalInteresting article in Thursday’s WSJ on ”Growth Hacking’ Helps Startups Boost Their Users’.  The article is worth reading as it captures the clever tactics of several companies – combining “marketing and coding that’s intended to sharply increase a nascent business’s user base.”  The growth hacking strategies from companies including AirBnB, Dropbox and Facebook are noted for helping to drive their significant valuations.
