What does everyone use for tracking/collection? Looking for GA alternatives.

From what I’ve seen, Segment -> Snowflake or BigQuery is probably the most popular. A lot use Mixpanel too. There are some alternatives to segment, like Rudderstack, or Jitsu.

We use Snowplow --> AWS and that works perfectly together with GrowthBook

I love Snowplow - but it’s very expensive for a start up.

No it's like 1-2k a month
So the data lake part we're ok with. Probably use aws Athena or similar. It's the tracking bit we're deciding on. Think you can use the snowplow tracker without snowplow with some tweaking.

We use the open source (free) version of snowplow. If you have a data lake, then I think you’re good to go as well.
