Brad D. Smith Business Incubator named HubSpot for Startups partner


The Brad. D. Smith Business Incubator has been approved as a HubSpot for Startups partner. The new designation means that business incubator clients will be able to acc​ess educational resources and tailored training, professional software at startup prices and an integrated platform for startups.

HubSpot helps businesses grow by creating an ecosystem of software, education and community. The HubSpot for Startups program helps startups grow through education, techniques and the use of software at prices that make sense for new businesses looking to get off the ground floor.

The Brad D. Smith Business Incubator is a mixed-use incubator that serves early-stage businesses and is housed under the Marshall University Research Corporation. Tricia Ball, interim associate director, thinks the partnership is a great value-add for business incubator clients.

“HubSpot is the creator of inbound marketing and is a thought leader in cutting-edge marketing strategies like product-led growth and community-led growth. They offer not only a transformative platform but amazing educational resources as well – both of which can really accelerate a company’s growth,” Ball said.
