90% of startups fail because of not prioritizing marketing early enough.
Andrew Lee Miller, an accomplished Digital Nomad working remotely from 10-15 countries per year, is the Founder and Startup Growth Expert at AndrewStartups. He has spent over 13 years growth hacking startup wins, and has drove growth for three multi-million dollar startup exits from Dubai to Silicon Valley. Since his third exit as Head of Marketing, he has launched and grown tech projects in over 15 countries, driving traction for over $22,000,000 in funding rounds as a consultant via his company, GrowthExpertz, including launching new apps for corporations like BBVA and Tinder’s parent company Match Group. He has also lectured in over a dozen countries about low-budget growth hacking strategies, worked with both 500 startups and YCombinator projects, written for StartupGrind, StartupNation and INC magazine. After years of consulting and advising for tech startups, Andrew has finally developed an interactive online Growth Course that is saving startups tens of thousands of dollars by teaching them to build scalable organic growth themselves, without any outsourcing or paid advertising.
