Growth Hack Union is a team of seriously committed people to disrupting ecommerce. Our story began when a friend of ours working in ecommerce lost his house due to the unsustainable business model in which vendors operate today.Based on the principles of growth hacking, we set ourselves the goal of finding a solution to help the millions of vendors and drop-shippers across the world; and ultimately the consumers, too. Our early attempts at hacking marketing models to attract more shoppers made us realize that a real solution had to redesign the business model itself. The result is Growth Hack Union.
We have solid experience in ecommerce, IT, finance and marketing. GHU embraces decentralization and holacracy. We take pride in our flat structure and shared economy values. The core team of 28 founders is international, and we have presence in the USA, China, Australia, Singapore and Germany. We have 400 people recruiting members, manufacturers and on the lookout for best-selling products.
GHU Teams & Locations
Our decentralized and holacratic structure means we don’t have the usual CEO and the rest of the C-suite, hell, we don’t even have managers! We only have team leaders and they can rotate according to the circumstances. We can also assign a team leader for a certain project and once it is executed, the team dissolves.
