The Fount is a selective 6-week part time program instructed by distinguished Growth practitioners from DeliverooAirbnb, PerkboxWealthsimple and more. Each week consists of one two-hour evening seminar, with some home study. 

The program is designed for professionals in Marketing, Data, Engineering and Product. It explores actionable growth processes and frameworks to help you determine a formulaic and sustainable growth model for your company.
