After a couple years of reading GrowthHackers.com and reaching a phase where I would like to work for and learn from the best. I would love to know who is making waves in the UK Growth Hacking scene?

    Ah hello @Hila_Qu !

    Good old England - my knowledge on this is a lot worse than who the good founders to follow are. I think maybe a better way to address this is to look at the companies that are undergoing growth and then use Linkedin to see if you can work out the head honchos.

    You'd have to look at companies like:
    - Happn (not entirely UK based + their head of growth went to Grabble)
    - Grabble
    - Deliveroo
    - One Fine Stay

    (insert other UK growth company)

    We face a bit of a strange paradox in the UK, we have some exceptionally talented people but there seems to be a slight opinion of 'if they're that good' - why don't they work in the states.

      Interesting, I remember headspace from UK as well? But I understand they grow strong natrually

      Great idea. The UK community is definitely more interspersed it seems!

    Good work Yuv, i've actually met Mr.Blute. Good work on tagging people too.

    I guess the question is are these individuals leading influencer marketers e.g your Gary Vee types or the guys behind the scenes using API's and automation.

    Thanks for putting that list together though!

    I'm going to chuck @vincentdignan in the mix for this list as well. I went to his talk and it was darn good.

    He's got a new book out http://queue.social/hvKStu3
