Take the guesswork out of Growth

Craig Zingerline knows too many startups are failing, and decided to do something about it.

As a 6 time founder himself, he interviewed over 400 other founders to learn about their struggles with growth. Turns out, there were some very common themes:

1. How do you identify where the growth potential is for your business?

2. How do you design & execute on holistic growth strategies to reach that potential?

So he synced up with cofounder and experienced marketer Jen Bryan to launch Velocity Growth. Our mission is to help startups succeed.

Velocity Growth is your no BS, no overhead consultancy. We only hire world class, experienced marketers and deploy them into projects for our clients. You deserve more growth. Our proven methodology is the engine behind some of the industry’s fastest-growing startups.

How we work

We work as an extension of your team, unlocking your growth potential. There are no junior people at our company – just senior experts who are masters of their craft. And we work very closely with our clients, with a transparent and open process across all of our engagements.

Step 1: Growth, Marketing, Product Audits

Most projects start with one or more audits – we’ll uncover the major opportunities, strengths, weaknesses, gaps, and areas of short, mid and long term growth potential. We’ll document and share this with you as we uncover key findings.

Step 2: Findings & Recommendations Workshop

Next, we conduct a 1 to 2 hour workshop where we present our initial findings and recommendations. From there, we work together to implement the key action items in the order that gives you the highest ROI.

Step 3: Weekly Growth Sprints

We work on a weekly sprint cadence, leveraging everything from designing and implementing experiments to managing paid and organic acquisition channels, through activation improvements & more.

Step 4: Check-ins & Reporting

We conduct regular check ins with your team, set goals, and report back on metrics and learnings. This is a highly engaging process where we make – not your typical boring agency presentation process – we dig in, share the wins and losses, and make decisions on next steps together.
