When I started at Icebreaker.vc in 2019, I realized it would make a major difference if I was able to build a cross-functional growth team in every single one of our portfolio companies.
However there wasn't really people experienced in cross-functional growth teams in Nordics and Baltics.
Therefore I decided to train them myself.
Since then I've trained almost 100 individuals from various backgrounds to run systematic test iteration process (cross-functional growth hacking) in early-stage startups to accelerate learnings and implement growth culture in the company from the very beginning.
Most of these individuals are now working in 50+ different early-stage startups of the ecosystem in growth, marketing or operations functions. The program has also validated to be an efficient way to employ educated immigrants that have struggled finding a job in Nordics/Baltics without knowing the local language and having a professional network.
