The highly anticipated Hypergrowth event by Drift took place last week in the seaport district of Boston.

The sessions were sizzling on the 90-degree day. Thankfully, the event took place along Boston’s waterfront so we had a breeze in the open air venue.

Watching Drift’s growth has been pretty astounding. We found out the company has grown revenue 10X and 5X each of the past few years and is now over 200 employees–pretty amazing for a company that reinvented the website chat category.

Overall, roughly 4,500 folks signed up with about 1,000 in attendance. We heard from Casey Neistat, Ryan Deiss, David Cancel and others. My personal favorite was Casey Neistat who is the inspiration behind many of the videos I work on.  And what a crazy story–from living in a trailer park as a teenage dad to becoming one of the most popular filmmakers on the Youtube platform.

Here are the #PiLights (our version of Highlights!) on the event. Next up. #INBOUND.

When you can boil your positioning down to a simple idea, a single word, even – you probably have it right… #NOW @dcancel @davegerhardt @drift #HYPERGROWTH18 pic.twitter.com/2BNJDS8Ahq
