Finally, we’ve re-launched our company Growmodo.

And you might think:

“Re-launch? I was not even aware that you launched the first time!”…

Ok I get it, chances are high you don’t even know Growmodo 1.0.

Never mind…It’s gone now anyway 😉

Either way, I’d like to share a little bit of our story with you so you can understand why we pivoted our business model and what we do differently now.

It might give you inspiration or helps you in case you are thinking about a change in direction too.

The fairy tale of the perfect startup launch

Once upon a time, my co-founder Roman and I decided to start a company with the beautiful name “Growmodo” and became (overnight) tremendously successful…
…Just kidding!

So let’s start again.

After years of working on various side projects and marketing campaigns for clients, we decided to build a real online business 😅.

So in 2016, we launched a small site called Growmodo.com which offered startups and small business owners the opportunity to hire marketers for specific tasks (or gigs).

All the marketing experts in our network were remote freelancers or specialised agencies that completed the jobs for our customers behind the Growmodo brand.

And it all started out well…

While still in the process of developing the platform we won multiple business contests.

And shortly after Growmodo went online, we got hunted on ProductHunt.com and became the most popular product of the day on August 12th, 2016.

So we got a boost in website traffic and our first customers were flying in…

But launching a business is a completely different story than running and growing a business.

To make a long story short, after almost 2 years we learned a lot about the industry, our ideal customer and ourselves.

Eventually, we confronted ourselves with questions that made us think.

Questions like…

  • If we would start today, what kind of business would we want to build?
  • What are our core values and are we currently really aligned with them?
  • Is our company Humanity-Plus or Humanity-Minus? In other words, is our company good for the world?
  • What would we work on if our financial needs were already taking care of?
Our answers made it super clear to us what we have to do to eventually build the business we really want to run.

So we decided to start again from scratch…
