shutterstock_163433096_miniBack in 2006, HubSpot was a dream shared by two tenacious MIT students.

Today, the company has 11,000+ customers in over 70 countries, with offices in Cambridge, Dublin, and Sydney. 

Six years ago, HootSuite (formerly known as BrightKit) surfaced as a solution to a busy Internet entrepreneur's inability to manage multiple social media networks.

Today, it's the world's most widely used social relationship platform with over 9 million users around the world. 

If you're reading this it's likely that your SaaS story already has a beginning, but where it will take you is yet to be determined. 

If that's the case, you can rest assure that you're in the right place.

Tweetable takeaways:

"You can never be too clear about what it is you actually care about, what you're out to do, and why people should care." - Dharmesh Shah, HubSpot [Tweet this]

"You are no longer competing with the business down the street for attention; you're competing for mindshare with TV, YouTube videos, tweets, and other forms of content." - Dharmesh Shah, HubSpot [Tweet this]

"Far too many companies make decoding their marketing message a herculean feat; make it simple, make it clear, and make it concise." - Dharmesh Shah, HubSpot [Tweet this]

"It turns out that it's really obvious when a small company pretends to be big. It doesn't inspire confidence." - Chris Savage, Wistia [Tweet this]

"Find a small audience that you can delight better than anyone else." - Chris Savage, Wistia [Tweet this]

"The more your messaging is like your customers, the more you’re going to succeed." - Justine Jordan, Litmus [Tweet this]

"Truth is always found outside of your office. Perfection doesn't exist, so let's just ship it." - David Cancel, HubSpot [Tweet this]

"If you're too wrapped in your idea you're usually also too blinded to know when you're driving into a dead end." - David Cancel, HubSpot [Tweet this]

"Who cares if you go raise money if your model isn’t driving any revenue." - Steve Johnson, HootSuite [Tweet this]

"It comes down to identifying the problem that is affecting the market right now and attacking it." - Magdalena Georgieva, HubSpot [Tweet this]

"The real trick to messaging is not looking at features, but rather what it enables for the person using it." - Meghan Keaney Anderson, HubSpot [Tweet this]

"It’s never about the product. It’s always about the person using the product." - Meghan Keaney Anderson, HubSpot [Tweet this]

"At the end of the day you’re so involved that you’re not going to see things the same way that a potential customer would." - Neil Patel, CrazyEgg & KISSmetrics [Tweet this]

"No one wakes up in the morning thinking they want to see an ad or get yet another email in their inbox." - Mike Volpe, HubSpot [Tweet this]

"Renting attention is easy, earning it is hard." - Mike Volpe, HubSpot [Tweet this]
