In one sentence: I have worked as a growth hacker (focused mainly on new venture development) since 2009.
Here’s “my story” for those who want to know it…
When I was in college the 2008 recession hit. My parents followed the advice of a business consultant and friend. This “friend” used their faith in him to funnel ALL of their assets (from money & office equipment to the family heirlooms & their house) into his own coffers. At this time, I was studying to complete my Bachelor’s Degree in Medicinal & Biological Chemistry.
In response to the recession, many of my friends began creating side hustles to pay their way through college degrees that were no longer affordable for their own parents to shoulder. I did not realize how much valuable knowledge I had accumulated growing up with two small business owners for parents, until I saved my new boss (of the startup I worked at nights & weekends) from intellectual property theft. After this, I quickly promoted from “intern” to sitting at her right hand through every meeting, event and negotiation; friends from the university dorms began to ask for help with growing their own startups. What started as an after-school internship, turned out to be the launch pad for my life-long career in marketing.
Shortly after I graduated from University, my startup experience led me to be hired to run an Apple SIS in northern Italy. It was there that I successfully doubled sales within one year without increasing the marketing budget by so much as $1. This lead the head of Europe to replicate my strategy throughout all of our other European locations, which resulted in IE Business School accepting my application to pursue my MBA at their gorgeous campus in Madrid, Spain.
While at IE Business School, I secured one of four coveted positions as a Venture Network Fellow and that whirlwind experience turned my natural knack for marketing into a super power you can read about below…

Here are a few nice things people have said about working with me
A few hours with Adi helped me refine our overall strategy for all our marketing assets. We reviewed the website, our product, and different social media platforms. She provided a series of resources and strategies that are priceless. We are already seeing results from the suggestions we have implemented and have a list of things to do still, which is exciting. I think meeting with Adi should be done on a regular basis because the details from her decade of seeing results, that makes all the difference.
Adi guided our startup project from the very inception to the moment when we successfully passed the pilot phase and set for further growth. Adi is an amazing growth-hacker familiar with bootstrapped and self-funded projects: under her guidance we maxed out our productivity and achieved targets in a matter of months. We wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t have her support. Totally recommend as a business growth guru.
Adi has been one of my go-to growth hackers & advisors since we first met in Mountain View, CA in 2016. Here she helped me to quickly grow a real estate investment venture using her growth hacking framework. When we were starting our latest venture, I reached out to get her take on a few things before making decisions on how and where to pivot. In a 30 minute call Adi helped us to identify which of the opportunities would be most profitable and require the lowest initial capital investment. From here she helped us to (1) refine our value proposition & pitch, (2) identify the decision makers within our qualified & available market, and (3) define the operational process we could use & advertise so that we could (4) charge exponentially more for our services.
Co-Founder at Stealth Mode Startup
Adi is a reliable, passionate and innovative growth hacker. In her time with GaltGrid, she not only developed the marketing plan and helped with investor relations, she also helped develop the team and the company. Through her insight and experience, Adi helped every person on the team grow and be as productive as possible. Despite the eventual failure of the company, Adi worked hard and helped in every way she could; even when morale was at its lowest. GaltGrid would not have gotten as far without her ability to grow companies, people and plans – as well as her ability to execute. Adi is a valuable asset to any company looking to learn and build.
Adi’s internet & social media marketing skills are truly amazing! I suspect that she has secretly come into possession of Aladdin’s Lamp.
President at Nourmandy Franchise Consulting Specialists
Adi is consistently using new growth hacks before 99% of the population knows they exist. She leverages new developments, tools and strategies, six to eighteen months before they appear in the ‘top 5 things to know’ Medium articles written by ‘cutting-edge’ digital marketing gurus.
Product Director, MySpine
We entered a highly competitive market with a projected chance of failure at 90%. Working with Adi, we launched to #1 in our town our first year and expanded to be #10 in the county by 2018.
