After a successful summit in Rennes last year, our team is looking forward to the next Digital Growth Summit. We welcome publishers to this third edition in Berlin on October 9th. Hosted together with DuMont, this year we will explore the topic of habit forming products.

Keynote and Ask Me Anything with Nir Eyal

Nir Eyal

We are thrilled to announce best-selling author Nir Eyal for a keynote speech and Ask Me Anything session at the Digital Growth Summit.

Dubbed by M.I.T. Technology Review as “The Prophet of Habit-Forming Technology”, Nir is renowned for his book, Hooked – How to Build Habit Forming Products, in which he explores how to create products people can’t put down.

Don’t miss this unique chance to hear from Nir and ask him your questions!
