How is MD9 different from all of the other marketing and growth agencies out there?
We focus on identifying and leveraging your best customer acquisition and retention strategies, because this leads to rapid sales and revenue growth. When startups grow, so do our local and global ecosystems and economies leading to positive world changing results.
If you are just looking to “build awareness” or do not care about the monetization of your app, we are not the right fit for you.
Our number one passion and goal is to bring an abundance of financial growth to each client we work with. Why? Throughout the mess of the 2008 recession our founder, Adi, watched helplessly as her family lost everything to a corrupt “business man” who promised to protect her family’s businesses and home.
Adi’s first advisory role wasn’t planned, it was an intervention. After a successful run with Adi’s first non-family owned startup, a close friend informed her that he would be launching a business and a digital marketer tried to convince him to buy snake oil. Using the lessons she learned from working in her family offices she stepped in and offered to help. This friend referred her to other entrepreneurs in need of real, honest and effective marketing advice.
To this day many of her calls involve identifying snake oil sold to startup founders, then developing solutions to get them the real results that they are looking for.

How did MD9 get started?
In 2017 Jeff Boman, was a Silicon Valley based Python developer and the CEO of GaltGrid when he reached out to Adi Soozin to ask if she’d be interested in opening a new company. The arrangement was simple, Jeff would manage high-tech development and customers, while Adi would develop the clients’ growth strategies, growth marketing (aka growth hacking) and The Million Dollar Pineapple’s team development.
In the spring of 2017 The Million Dollar Pineapple was created. The company started with the pair working around the clock to meet client needs. However, as time progressed the growing client demands forced them to expand their team.
In 2018 Adi and the company servers were targeted by a hacker. Faced with the decision to close shop or tighten their cyber security, Adi packed 4 laptops and took a flight to Israel to learn from a few of the world’s best cyber security specialists. Jeff dropped to an intermittent advisor role, taking a full time position with a startup.
After the company servers were back up and running, Adi went into high gear traveling 5-7 months per year to work with clients in the US, EU & LatAm.
Within three years of opening the metaphorical doors Adi grew The Million Dollar Pineapple to four brand lines powered by a team of more than 50 contractors & freelancers from around the world.
