What real people are saying?
Co-Founder & CTO at newtrul
"Sameer is a truly expectational thought leader when it comes to network effects. He has created pragmatic frameworks to help you dissect, evaluate and strengthen your startup's NFX. The content he has created is truly on at the forefront of understanding NFX. No one else comes close (including Andrew Chen's book)."
Co-Founder & Chief Design Officer at Groove
"Most people hear the words "network effects" and they assume some very broad and vague ideas about it, which are often hard to act on. The course taught a lot of specific and practical information that opened our minds to new strategies that we could actually use."
