PATAcademy-HCD brings professional growth hackers to share insights on the most effective ways to grow a business exponentially.
Growth is the life-blood of a company. In our unpredictable and fast-moving world, the dynamism of growth hackers is essential for any business to stay ahead of its competitors and revolutionise the future of their industry.

With tools that are simply not included in the average marketing degree, growth hackers tap into new markets, software and the intangible commodities of the online and unexplored world by experimenting and re-working traditional marketing and sales strategies to centre on growth. They redefine products and distribution to increase a company’s customer loyalty, development and retention – the competitive advantage of some of the biggest names across industries from Airbnb to Instagram.
