Hi, I'm Gina the VP of Growth at Duolingo, the most downloaded education app in the world. Over the past 3.5 years, I've helped build our user base from 3 to 150 million. I run the cross-functional growth team and am in charge of all marketing and communications at Duolingo.
Duolingo is a very interesting company growth-wise because we've never done any paid advertising. The company has raised $83.3 million from Google Capital, USV, NEA and KPCB and selected by Apple as "iPhone App of the Year" and by TechCrunch as "Best Education Startup." Our mission: free language education for the world.
Previously, I lead Tumblr's growth in Latin America and developed digital marketing campaigns for brands like Louis Vuitton and American Express. I have a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy from Brandeis University and am originally from Brazil.
Ah, and last year I had the honor of presenting to President Obama. That was the bomb. AMA!
I will be live on Oct 6 from 930 AM PT for one and a half hours during which I will answer as many questions as I can.
