Cottonwood Technology Fund approved as HubSpot partner

March 22, 2021. 

We’re excited to partner with HubSpot for Startups to offer their program designed specifically to help startups grow and scale better, and faster – at a startup-friendly cost. As professional VC we have seen many many CRM systems over the last 20 years and we make always the joke “HubSpot is the least worst” 😉 Lots of CRM systems are too time-consuming. We can really recommend HubSpot including the use of the Outlook-connector.

What is the HubSpot for Startups program?

  • EDUCATION RESOURCES AND TAILORED TRAINING | Content, masterclasses, and 24/7 support to get your startup growing. From board deck templates to quick tips on customer acquisition, this content is made just for you. Plus, you’ll have access to world-class support from HubSpot experts and a startup-friendly onboarding experience.
  • PROFESSIONAL SOFTWARE, STARTUP PRICING | Access to HubSpot Growth Platform, a full suite of software for marketing, sales, and customer service, with a completely free CRM at its core at a startup-friendly price, to help you grow and scale betterThe software grows as you do, so you have access to in-person product training, too. All of this is up to 90% off.  [Learn more about the software here.]

We are gladly having Cottonwood Technology Fund on board as lead investor. They are very supportive on aligning strategy and execution. The first year they brought in already 8 corporates as potential customer. We are surprised every time about their extensive entrepreneurial mindset, business experience and global network of Cottonwood. They have been very smart people and 24/7 supportive.

We would not exist, or certainly not in New Mexico, if it were not for Cottonwood. Until Cottonwood got involved we struggled to get attention from other capital providers. Cottonwood has been a real catalyst, beyond their money, to upgrading our management team, opening doors to potential strategic investors and customers and focusing on our market entry strategy. Cottonwood has been a great partner in driving our success in every area. I truly believe they wake up every day looking for ways and ideas that can support our success.

Cottonwood began working with me a year before they closed their first fund. Even though they weren’t initially in a position to invest they still opened doors to potential investors and customers, and assisted with the fund raising strategy and execution plan. Once their fund was closed they took an aggressive lead role in pulling together our first round and helping us launch the company. Now after having raised almost $150M they continue to support our growth, provide valuable advice and open doors to additional resources as we need them. We have been fortunate to have Cottonwood as a partner in building our company.
