FI – Columbia Road

Women’s Career Network warmly welcomes our members to Columbia Road on 7th May 2019. Growth hacking is a major buzzword of today but what does it really mean? How did growth hacking drive the success stories of paragons such as Airbnb or Dropbox?

In the event we will hear about Ilona Kuusela and Krista Palmu’s expertise and work at Columbia Road as well as get an understanding of the growth hacking methodology. You will hear what the growth hacking mindset and culture is, what kinds of skills and steps it encompasses in practice, and what does it take to become a growth agent in an organisation. You’ll get some hands-on growth hacking experience to turn on your growth mode. You’ll also have the chance to be among the first people to see Columbia Road’s new office at Esplanadi, and to mingle with the company representatives. All female students studying law or business are warmly welcome.

Ilona Kuusela is a Managing Consultant and Growth Marketer at Columbia Road. She has been at Columbia Road since 2016 and has formerly worked at Google Finland, where she was also a Google Ads trainer in the Google Partners program. She holds an M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from Aalto University.

Krista Palmu is a Senior Consultant and Growth Marketer at Columbia Road and has been there from 2017. Krista is an Aalto University alumna with M.Sc. degrees from Marketing and Computer Science.
