HubSpot announced that it has entered a three-year commitment with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help startups grow better. Through the agreement, HubSpot will leverage AWS services to expand its platform and provide added benefits to members of the Connect and HubSpot for Startups programs.
HubSpot currently provides AWS Activate members with access to HubSpot for Startups, which includes preferred pricing on the HubSpot Growth Suite software, executive mentorship, educational content tailored to startups, and other startup-friendly perks. As part of this expanded collaboration, AWS will provide AWS Activate memberships and credits to startups in the HubSpot for Startups program, which today includes thousands of organizations across more than 50 countries.
AWS will also support HubSpot’s Connect program by co-investing to build an ecosystem for HubSpot partners, including content tailored to developers. Connect partners will also be able to leverage AWS services and will be granted credits that can be applied to their AWS account.
“At HubSpot, our mission is to help millions of organizations grow better. I’ve been a passionate supporter of startups ever since HubSpot was a startup itself,” said Dharmesh Shah, CTO and co-founder of HubSpot. “Collaborating with AWS will allow us to better serve the startup community as we continue to scale with our customers and partners. We are proud to select AWS as our preferred cloud provider to run our Marketing, Sales, and Service Hubs and look forward to expanding our use of their services to benefit growing businesses.”
Additionally, AWS has signed on for a second year of sponsoring INBOUND – a leading industry event that pulls together tens of thousands of companies every year. At INBOUND 2018, AWS sponsored Startup Central, a showcase of leading early-stage companies that are integrated with the HubSpot platform.
“HubSpot has earned a reputation as a leading growth platform and for their standout CRM and marketing automation software for SMBs,” said Terry Wise, Global Vice President of Worldwide Channels and Alliances, Amazon Web Services. “We look forward to continue working with HubSpot as they help startups around the world leverage AWS services and grow their business.”
