We’ve got just under a week left until HYPERGROWTH Boston. And as you count down the days until the event of the year, here’s a pro-tip from me to you. HYPERGROWTH is about learning and making connections. It’s a gathering of some pretty amazing people that you should get to know. I skimmed the guest list and found these 10 people who I cannot wait to chat with on September 3rd.
And if you’re still on the fence about buying a ticket, check out why this attendee thinks you should just take the plunge, and advice from this attendee on what to expect at HYPERGROWTH. Oh yeah, if you shoot a tweet to @Drift we might be able to get you a discount 😉
Now let’s meet these fine attendees.
