HubSpot was founded in 2005 with zero customers. Today, over 78,000 businesses in 120 countries use HubSpot to grow. With the company pulling in $675 million in revenue last year, HubSpot is one of the most impressive growth stories of the past 15 years - from the raw numbers and thought leadership, to their culture and transparency.
What would you ask someone who was in the room that first year and has been instrumental at the company every step of the way since?
Dan Tyre, director at HubSpot (HubSpot employee #6), is that person. I recently spoke with Dan about coaching sales reps and instilling the inbound mindset throughout your organization for the Modern Sales Management podcast.
