BERNARDUS SUMARTOK

Founder at Tripvisto (Jakarta, Indonesia)

Because the more we understand our customers the more we can develop features they want to use and buy. Thank to the acceleration we are systematically introducing the customer insights on the product development and implementation (not just on marketing decisions), validating before the coding (testing new features on paper and low fi prototype). The best part is that we are increasing sales while maintaining production costs costs since the Customer Service team is now focused on post-sales instead of resolving doubts on purchasing online.

6 MONTHS AFTER ACCELERATION

  • 200% growth after new feature launch

  • +40% sustained monthly growth

  • 70% yearly target 6 months after the acceleration

“How come passing from 100% to 400% growth in just 6 months?”

KEREM KUYUCU

Co-Founder at JustMop (Dubai, Emirates)

We are scaling much faster based on real data and customer feedback, looking the big picture from a high-level perspective. This is a high impact acceleration experience, a 5 really intense program run by experts. I would recommend this with my eyes shut, specially to friends who have a startup and they want to grow at a higher speed. I have so many actionable items, it was very tangible. I've been in too many workshops, programs, startup weekends but this made me move out of my comfort zone, it was a whole different experience, I was literally hacked. Living with top level mentors in the same place, them being very humble, being super hands on, becoming friends with them that was amazing, like really mind-blowing. Definitely one of the most memorable experiences in my life.

BEFORE ACCELERATION

  • 100% Y-o-Y growth
  • 70% Retention Rate
  • 30% CAC

AFTER THE PROGRAM

  • 400% Y-o-Y Growth

  • 90% Customer Retention Rate

“We got a 100% membership renewal this year and 80% upgrading of members”

Alexandre Tsuk

Founder at Book Greener (France, Bali)

My company is booming after the acceleration. I have gained radical focus and clarity. I can literally connect and empathize with our customers in a way that I convert every single 15’ pitch into a member. All our actions now are addressed to build a tight community first by getting continuous feedback. We are pivoting to initiatives that deliver much more value for our conscious business community and for each Book Greener member. We have diversified our membership levels, simplifying acquisition and enhancing upgrading based on what members really value. The results have been very visible. We are replicating the Book Greener model in 2 new destinations and our team is growing.

AFTER THE PROGRAM

  • 100% yearly renewal Jan ‘17

  • 80% Upgrading of members

  • Launching in 2 new territories

  • +4 Team members

BEFORE THE PROGRAM

  • Business stagnation
  • Lack of focus and dispersion
  • Loss of +130k
