When Dharmesh Shah founded HubSpot together with Brian Halligan at MIT in 2006, he didn’t have the faintest idea the startup would boom. In fact, it attracted more traffic than established companies as a result of his efforts. Dharmesh Shah had founded a company before establishing HubSpot. He eventually sold it and started blogging. However, his small blog became very popular with surfers, which stimulated him to start working on HubSpot.
HubSpot is currently one of the most prominent US developer and promoter software applications relating to customer service, inbound marketing, and sales. The Cambridge-based software company offers a wide range of services. Some include CRM, SEO, web analytics, lead generation, content management, and social media marketing. HubSpot is a publicly-traded firm with a net worth of around $2 billion.
