with Sean Ellis

Who is Sean Ellis?

  • Invented the Dropbox Referral system (📈 3900% growth in 15 months)
  • Coined the term "Growth Hacking"
  • Founded GrowthHackers.com (500K members)
  • Author of Hacking Growth

Sean Ellis coined the term "Growth Hacking" and is considered the founder of the worldwide Growth Hacking movement. He developed and applied Growth Hacking in the early days at companies like Dropbox, Eventbrite, LogMeIn, Uproar, and Lookout, which led to breakout growth for these companies (all went on to exceed billion dollar valuations). When Dropbox reached a $1B revenue run rate, it achieved this milestone faster than any SaaS startup before it.


​Sean is also co-author of "Hacking Growth", which has been translated into 16 languages.


Sean is an experienced entrepreneur. He founded Qualaroo (a customer insight company with clients such as Uber, Intuit, Starbucks, Amazon) and served as CEO until its acquisition by a private equity firm. He also founded and led GrowthHackers.com until its 2018 acquisition.


Today Sean helps companies worldwide accelerate customer and revenue growth through workshops, keynote presentations, select advising roles and occasional Interim VP growth roles. His most recent Interim VP Growth role was with Bounce (2022 - 2023), which is now one of the fastest-growing consumer network-effect startups in the world.

“Sean is unique. He pulled off two stellar performances on stage, speaking about "Growth Hacking". He also did two full-day workshops which received great feedback. And he did a fireside chat about being an angel investor. Sean is a pro. His credible background and accomplishments only add to this. His expertise in growth is world-class. But above all, Sean is a humble and fantastic person to be around. If I get the chance to hire him again, I will not hesitate. Sean is one of a kind"
