Thinking about Entrepreneurship or Startups which of the following do you think really matters -

# Having Degree from a Tier-1 college?

# Having or finding the right Co-founder?

# Sky-rocketing your scale up as soon as you secure funding?

# Pouring in your resources to get as many customers as fast as possible via Ads?


Well the short answer to all the above questions is, IT DOESN’T.


In today’s episode we’ve with us Vaibhav Sisinty, Founder, GrowthSchool. And in this episode, while sharing his experiences of building and scaling GrowthSchool, he busts all the above myths one-by-one.


For all of you, who’ve been active on Linkedin, in the past few years, especially around themes like marketing and growth hacking, you would have surely noticed a post or an Ad by Vaibhav, or his perfect case of personal branding and self-curated courses on Sisinty.com.


During the episode, we talk with Vaibhav about how he learnt and grew his marketing skills during his job at Uber and Klook, how he used a brilliant growth hacking method even while raising his first round and much more.
