Dave Grow is the chief operating officer (and chief marketing officer) at Lucid Software, a rapidly growing tech startup in Utah. Prior to joining Lucid, Dave graduated summa cum laude from BYU with a B.S. in Business Management and then worked as a management consultant at Bain & Company. He left Bain and turned down an admissions offer from Dartmouth Business School to join Lucid, which at the time was still a startup run from a basement, as the first business hire. Five years later, Lucid has over 150 employees and over 8 million users worldwide.
An integral part of the process from the very beginning, Dave has worn nearly every hat on the business and product teams. He has written the pricing model for Lucid’s core product, Lucidchart, redesigned and A/B tested web pages, crafted marketing strategies, brought the product from a freemium model to an enterprise-level solution, and even launched Lucid’s second product, Lucidpress. Despite having a support team, Dave still takes the time each and every day to review and answer customer support tickets to ensure he maintains a thorough understanding of all aspects of the business.
Dave continues his hands-on approach and has been instrumental in Lucid’s funding efforts, the most recent of which resulted in $36 million series B from Spectrum Equity which was just recently announced. He has played a crucial role in the company’s being able to double its revenue for each of the past four years.
