A couple of weeks ago I booked myself into a startup event in Melbourne.
The main speaker I was keen to hear from was Noah Kagan, founder of Appsumo and early employee at Facebook and Mint.
Noah has popped up on my radar a lot recently, frequently mentioned as an expert at “growth hacking” – which basically means he’s good at rapidly growing new startups.
I tweeted out that I was heading to the event and included Noah’s twitter name in the tweet.
He tweeted back to me and said he was keen to hang out when he got to Australia.
I didn’t realise it, but Noah was a reader of my blog from back in the early days.
We connected when he arrived in Melbourne and met up several times over the weekend he was in town.
