They say that every successful company has a Fearless Founder behind it.
But they often fail to mention the team that works tirelessly and quietly to make the company a success. The team whose ingenuity, dedication, and tenacity results in the company’s growth. This magic that unfolds behind the scenes often goes unrecognised.
We’re here to change that. Held every year, Growth Champions 2020 is here to commemorate the Unsung Heroes.
They are the leaders who help teams navigate the journey of growth and the problem-solvers who everyone looks to when the going gets tough. They are the passionate individuals - who, together with their teams - create magic to influence, collaborate, and do what it takes to succeed.
The heroes who help their companies achieve efficient and sustainable growth.
It always begins with one person.
Any individual working at any stage in the product and growth industry can be nominated.

We strongly believe in keeping it balanced and fair.

Being Product folks ourselves, we understand the value of the team's time. Which is why we are designing the process to be digital and flexible to your schedule - until the shortlist. For the shortlisted teams, we estimate that we will need 8 hours distributed over 1 month for preparation and deeper discussions with jury members.
Privacy and integrity of your data is of utmost importance to us. Hence, all the data will be handled exclusively by our core team and jury members only. We are in the process of contracting third party agencies who are adept at anonymizing data and implementing data silos. If you have any queries, suggestions, or requests please don't hesitate to contact email@example.com
Apart from the recognition you gain, all participants would benefit through two pillars of our initiative: content and community. As a participant, you will receive early and exclusive access to resources, research, and case studies on how to build successful and high-growth products. Additionally, you will be part of an invite-only online digital community of experts, fellow Product and Growth leaders.
No, any organisation involved in the creation of products is eligible. They could be bootstrapped, venture-backed, corporate-backed, or unfunded - it wouldn’t matter. We are here to learn, recognize, celebrate the people and their pursuits in product and growth excellence.
Yes! But you will be nominating your team/squad as a whole. We believe that great products are made by great teams, and we centred our flagship awards around that.
You can apply or nominate cross-functional teams, product or growth squads. A team may consist of professionals from various disciplines, ranging from Product Management, Engineering, and Design to Marketing, Customer Success and Sales. It is not just restricted to product managers or teams of product, design, tech organisations.
