About the Founder

Melinda Elmborg was a Venture Capital Investor at the French VC firm Daphni. To be able to actually help startups, she switched careers to become a startup coach. That's when she started Startup Action.


After meeting hundreds of startups and their founders, she knows what works and what doesn't. Based on her learnings, she has developed The Startup Action Formula that guides startups from launch to exponential growth


Mikkel Steen

Co-Founder & CEO Artboost

"Startup Action was instrumental in our process of becoming a data-driven business. Following The Insight Project, we started to have more data-based discussions rather than opinion based discussions. It has helped us to alter the mindset and the mentality of the company culture, making the probability of our overall success higher."

Co-Founder & CEO Dashl

"Melinda is extremely competent at what she does, very supportive and hands-on and ensured that we as clients were fully equipped with the correct tools and information before the The Insight Project was concluded. She delivered in a swift and timely manner and also provides us with a workshop with advice on how we could use the data for growth. Thank you very much!"

Solange Arnaud

Founder & CEO Medoucine

"Melinda from Startup Action has automated and centralized all our dashboards and allowed us to create new dashboards to better track our business. She worked with each member of the team to establish relevant indicators and train us to become self-reliant. Everyone had great pleasure when interacting with her, she was able to make the work pleasant even though it seemed difficult. She has not only a very technical approach to the tool but also a good business acumen that has allowed us to make a big progress in a short time. Thank you Melinda!"

Tobias Rydell

Co-Founder & CEO CE Check

"Lucky enough, we had the fortune to get a series of coaching sessions with Startup Action. Melinda is the most experienced person I have met within the growth hacking and metrics field. She had a very structured and pragmatic way to analyze our needs and help us get on the track. In only a couple of weeks, we were educated in growth hacking, analyzed company-specific metrics, implement website and system tracking, draft on a metrics dashboard, hints on investment pitching, recruiting strategies and a plan on how to work with metrics and growth hacking in the future. This has been a mind-blowing experience! This is a MUST for all digital/SaaS-startups! Thank you Melinda."
