Why This New Chatbot Is More Likely To Get You Promoted Than Fired

Thu, 14 Jul 2016 19:09:36 GMT2016-07-14T19:09:36Z

Insightful Study of 386 SaaS Startup Pricing Pages

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 13:16:52 GMT2016-03-21T13:16:52Z

Late last year, I combed through the Montclare SaaS 250 — a directory of the biggest SaaS companies in the world — to find common trends in what I thought would be a significant dataset. As it turned out, 80% of the 250 biggest SaaS companies didn’t have a pricing page at all.

Happy Birthday HubSpot! 9 Lessons From Our First 9 Years

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 20:48:58 GMT2015-06-09T20:48:58Z

9 years ago today, on June 9th 2006, HubSpot was officially started. I remember the day, because it was also the day I graduated.  (I had promised myself I'd enjoy my 2 years in grad school without too much distraction, so deliberately picked graduation day as the official start-date for HubSpot.)

So far, we've had a pretty good run.  HubSpot is now public [NYSE:HUBS] and still growing fast.  More importantly (at least to me), I'm still having a great time.

Rather than bring out the party hats and cake, I thought I'd reflect a bit on some of the hard-won lessons we've learned across our 9 hear history in the hopes that it will be helpful to some of you.  (Note: The below picture of a cake is from our 2nd birthday party.  Now, we'd need a bigger cake)
