SendGrid innovates whole email delivery industry. In the age of email being one of the top performing platforms in creating and nurturing customer relationships, SendGrid eases the entire process for marketers and developers in crafting, segmenting, testing and successfully delivering their email while building a competitive advantage for their customers.
This partnership will give Hero House community members, aka Hero House residents and Armenia Startup Academy alumni an opportunity to prepare targeted and effective email marketing campaigns while experiencing an increase in productivity that is necessary for today’s fast-changing business environment.
In particular, they will get credits to access SendGrid Email Deliverability and Engagement Platform. Moreover, Hero House Community members will get mentorship by SendGrid Accelerate team, which partners with Techstars, Global Accelerator Network and 500 Startups.
Founded in 2009, after graduating from the TechStars program, SendGrid developed an industry-disrupting, cloud-based email service to solve the challenges of reliably delivering emails on behalf of growing companies. Like many great solutions, SendGrid was born from the frustration of three engineers whose application emails didn’t get delivered, so they built an app for email deliverability. Today, SendGrid is responsible for sending billions of emails for some of the best and brightest companies in the world.
