About Us

The idea and the people behind GrowthMentor

How it all started

For years, often found myself feeling lonely, professionally.  would get frustrated and wish that had someone with similar growth marketing mindset to bounce ideas around with.  The idea for GrowthMentor came from my own personal struggle of being solo-marketer. 

The team

We’re an international team with diverse backgrounds and skill sets.

Some of our skills are complementary while others overlap.

We don’t take ourselves too seriously and are not scared to ask for help or speak up when something isn’t sitting right.

We hope to achieve the same for this platform!

We all strongly believe in human relationships and active learning, which just happen to be two of the core values of Growthmentor, the third is humility.

Foti GrowthMentor


Lover of all things Growth Marketing, Foti has truly found his happy place since starting GrowthMentor. He'd happily spend all of his time mingling with other Growth folks as long as there are snacks involved.
Jessica GrowthMentor


A people person trapped behind a screen, Jessica makes the best of it by chit-chatting with GM people all around the world and organizing events for them to connect with one-another.
Alek GrowthMentor


Product Designer
With the reputation as ‘the nicest guy I know’ he really wouldn’t even have to produce anything. He could just show up and be nice and everyone would be happy. BUT, this dude delivers amazing designs time and time again!
Micah GrowthMentor


Head of Growth
Fun story! Micah was Foti's intern in 2019-- fast forward and now she's leading Growth at GrowthMentor 🤯 For a self professed 'Growth Nerd' she couldn't have found herself in a better place!
Elisavet Maniou


Operations Manager
Elisavet has a 5 star NPS score on live chat because she is a bonafide problem solver. Whether public facing or behind the scenes, we can all rest assured when Elisavet is on the case!
Melisa GrowthMentor


Video Editor
Melisa's enthusiasm and positive vibes have been a perfect match for our community. From localized events to product demo videos, you can tell there was a smile on her face while creating them!
Lukasz GrowthMentor


Ruby on Rails Developer
The man, the myth, the face that landed on billboards around Poland for the work he did building GrowthMentor. Lukasz is the true star behind every single call that happens thanks to his genius coding skills!
Developer GrowthMentor


Front End Developer
Oski may be the youngest member of the team, but you would never know it based on his professionalism, eye for detail and top notch front end skills!

Our Core Values


Nobody knows everything and we should all be open to hearing a different perspective on what we are working on.

The marketing world and the tools available are changing at light speed, so how can any one person be expected to keep up?

Opening yourself up to feedback from your peers will not only make you a stronger person, but also lead to more confidence in your professional life.

Active Learning

It is so easy to get enthralled with the marketing blog world and spend copious amounts of time listening to the smartest of smart peeps on their podcasts.

It’s great to take it all in, but at the end of the day, that’s all passive learning. You’re absorbing everything that they are saying, but really anyone can do that.

What matters is what you’re doing with that knowledge.

  • Are you moving forward and testing out what you just read?
  • Are you having conversations about what you want to try?

Even verbalizing out loud what you just read about can help you to process it fully.

Human Relationships

People make the world go round.

Sorry bots, you may be impressive, but I’d still rather talk to a human any day.

We believe in the lost art of simply “having a chat”.

GrowthMentor comes down to people helping people.

Establishing relationships with marketing professionals from all over the world and sharing failures, ideas and goals is a pretty cool thing in our book.

We’ve spent many an hour going over every aspect and scrutinizing every tiny detail of this platform, having disagreements mixed in with laughter (and the occasional bottle of wine).
