About GrowthBookHere at GrowthBook we are building an open source A/B testing platform and transforming the way product decisions are made.

We've created GrowthBook to give all companies the power and flexibility of a custom in-house experimentation system without having to build it themselves.The world of product development is increasingly moving towards data-driven decision making, and the best way to objectively measure the impact of a product is with A/B testing. Top companies already know this, and test everything they ship. As these methods spread, A/B testing will increasingly be part of all product development processes, and will require a new set of tools which are highly integrated and customized to the product and data.
