About Us

We built GrowSurf as the referral software that we always wanted.

Back in 2015 we were searching for referral program software that would fit the needs of our SaaS business. Our vision was to gather pre-launch email signups from referrals, and seamlessly integrate unique links into our product post-launch. We were looking for a modern solution that could let us easily plug-and-play referrals. The available options in the market did not have what we were looking for, and we waited patiently for years for someone to build this.

We ended up creating our refer-a-friend program in-house. The initial scope of work we had estimated to build the referral logic was very low. After all, it was simply just tracking referrals. But as we started designing out the customer referral flows, we found ourselves wishing for an out-of-the-box solution.

GrowSurf is the referral software that we always wanted as a SaaS startup. We're genuinely excited to democratize referral marketing for all internet businesses, and we can't wait to help you take your growth to the next level.

"The most important thing for us was that the referral program had to be something that we could build and execute without having to have someone technical on the team. GrowSurf’s ease of implementation was pretty awesome. If we had paid someone to build our referral program from scratch, it would have been a pretty expensive and web-dev-rate consuming process."
