Who Are Hubspot and Salesforce?
Both companies are at the top of the CRM industry, and have been competing head to head in that CRM space now.
Hubspot was founded in 2006 by Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah. They initially started in the realm of inbound marketing software and then later on developed their CRM to help sales departments generate leads.
Bringing a whole platform together that can manage contacts and generate leads is amazing. They've continued to develop the software for customer service.
They are based out of Cambridge, MA and have over 80,000 customers in 120 countries right now.
Salesforce is the OG in this industry. They essentially pioneered cloud-based CRM software. They started back in 1999 and have a little bit more of a customer base, with 150,000 customers.
They are headquartered on the West Coast, in San Francisco, CA. They started with a straightforward CRM, but they also acquired and integrated several other platforms focused on customer service, marketing, automation, analytics, and also application development.
