Connect with High-Caliber Peers.
Not Product-Led Wannabes
Transforming your business into a product-led powerhouse is more fun when you’re doing it alongside your peers. Throughout the week, you’ll have optional opportunities to hang out in breakout rooms, organize private meetups, or just chat inside your cohort’s private Slack group.

The way we buy and sell sunglasses, clothes, jewelry, and even food has changed. So has the way we buy and sell software.
No longer is your product’s true value gated behind a sales team and a thick contract. Now, the users have the power to influence buying decisions up the chain of command.
Product-led lets you prove your value to these users. It puts them in the driver’s seat and gives them a chance to have precious “Aha!” moments and fall in love with your product before paying.
It’s this exact approach that lets you grow a business where hundreds (even thousands) of customers can sign up, onboard, achieve value, and upgrade from a free plan to a paid one without ever contacting anyone on your team.
Imagine what that could do for your business.
And this is not only possible but probable when you implement a successful product-led growth strategy.
We know this because we’ve helped hundreds of software companies, large and small, leverage their product to skyrocket growth and revenue in ways they never imagined possible.
Power Up Your Whole Team with Product-Led Growth

Product-Led Growth: It’s the Future.
Product-led growth is disrupting the software industry as a whole. And the results don't lie. Just like Canva, Dropbox, HubSpot, Drift, and more have flourished by adopting product-led growth, you can build and grow a successful product-led software business. Wouldn’t it be nice if:
You could have thousands of free users upgrade without ever talking to a sales rep?
Boost your signups by 20-30% by gaining access to a wider top-of-funnel?
Reduce your customer acquisition costs by as much as 1,000%?
Scale your business to 50M ARR with only 50 employees?
This is a competitive advantage that product-led growth can give you. And this is exactly what we’ll teach you in the Product-Led Growth Certificate™️ Program.

In a word: nope. Whether you’re just getting started in SaaS or you have 3+ years of experience in software, marketing, growth, product, customer success, or user design under your belt, this training program will give you the knowledge and skills to become a product-led growth expert.
You’ll learn not just what to think about product-led growth, but how to think about it — and you’ll learn how to confidently implement these strategies in your company or for private clients. The program teaches you the exact same principles, methodology, and practical techniques that helped power meteoric growth at companies including Slack, Dropbox, Zoom, and Canva.
The Product-Led Growth Certification Program is built for software founders looking to make the switch from sales-led to product-led. It’s also designed for those working in marketing, product, growth, UX/UI design, customer experience, and CRO roles.
If you want to understand the theory and practice the hands-on skills you’ll need to confidently build and grow a product-led software business, this is the program for you. Along with exploring and understanding the actual nuts and bolts of PLG, you’ll learn how to get buy-in from others in your organization, and ease the shift into a product-led business.
Great question. The Product-Led Growth Certificate program is built for B2B SaaS founders, product owners, and growth leads who understand the importance of selling without relying on a sales team.
If you’re open to exploring new models and want to become an advocate for product-led growth at your organization, this program is right for you. If you’re unwilling to consider launching a free or freemium version of your product (one of the linchpins of PLG), then maybe stick around and read our blog for a bit before applying. :)
Depending on how quickly you absorb new information, the course can usually take anywhere between 8 to 16 hours to complete. Most tackle the course over a period of 4 weeks by focusing 2 – 4 hours per week on the training, real-world projects, and discussing product-led growth in the private Slack channel. However, the course is completely self paced, so some dedicate two full days to completing their certification.
Here’s a non-exhaustive list of challenges that past and current PLG students have arrived with (and overcome):
Getting data-based support for changing your SaaS growth approach (including how to pitch PLG to your sales team without causing a panic)
Integrating product-led growth and sales-led growth to create a hybrid model
Turning more free trial users into paid customers via better onboarding, in-product experiences, and follow-up
Struggling to identify and prioritize opportunities for growth
And a whole lot more
The Product-Led Growth book covers the theory of building a product-led business, while the certification program puts what you learn into action. Unlock your full potential with a free trial of the Product-Led Growth Fundamentals Certificate.
