Following the successful launch event earlier in the year, Rocketeers of Retail was back for session two on Thursday, 19th October, with our friends from ShippitBigCommerceBraintree and Zendesk.

This time around, the theme was Breaking Through: Learn to Fly – focusing on growth hacks, techniques and learnings which have helped some of Australia’s most infamous household names scale.

The event, hosted at the Handpicked Cellar Door in Sydney was packed full of small to medium sized retailers – looking for tips to break through the million dollar ceiling and truly scale their business.

Guests were inspired by the speakers and ‘Masters of Flight’: Dean Salakas – The Party People, Lauren Silvers – Glamazon, Myles Fleming – Kidstuff and Richard Kelsey – Beer Cartel.

The key takeaways for the evening were:

  1. Focus on the customer!
  2. Invest in systems early!
  3. Know your CAC! (Customer Acquisition Cost)
  4. Fake it until you make it!
  5. Less is more!
