Get In Touch With Us

    Gina Gotthilf was the VP of Growth at Duolingo, the most downloaded education app in the world, leading the team that built its user base from 3 to 200 million. She also led Tumblr‘s growth in Latin America and participated in the Mike Bloomberg presidential campaign to help oversee digital ad campaigns at a historical daily spend.

    In 2020, she joined Brian and Yuri as a co-founder of Latitud, to help engineer serendipity for the top doers and thinkers in the Latam startup ecosystem.
    In this episode,

    Gina Gotthilf’s earlier work history saw her found a boutique agency in Brazil. The agency’s focus was on helping companies involved in the tech industry grow. She also represented Tumblr in Latin America. Her role saw her help create and implement strategies that led to amazing growth using public relations, effective communications, and various partnerships. She also led the country’s MediaMath launch and developed international digital marketing campaigns for luxury brands. These include, amongst others, LVMH, American Express, and Estée Lauder.

    Her path to success was not always smooth, however. Gina Gotthilf struggled with depression in her younger years. This led to her dropping out of college in the United States, where she studied philosophy, anthropology, and Chinese. She ultimately returned to her home country of Brazil.

    When Gina Gotthilf returned to school, she once more studied philosophy and worked in a neuroscience laboratory. After this, she decided to pursue her dream. She moved to New York and started an internship in digital media. She returned to Brazil at the age of 25, where, according to her, her real career began.

Leading up to the conference, Gina was prompt, engaged, and a joy to work with. Not only has she accomplished leading a team that has grown Duolingo’s user base from 3 to 150 million in the past 4 years, but she has also found the time to contribute her learnings to the GrowthHackers Community for greater good.
