Hi Charmayne- that's a great way to use HubSpot 🙂

If you've ever got any questions about how to use the CRM or anything, please feel free to reach out - here's my LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/mcavinchey/

 

I'm in Dublin and run the Dublin HUG (HubSpot User Group) - you're welcome to attend if we ever get up and running again in real life!

Hi Everyone, 

 

I know I'm late to the party, hopefully only fashionably late! My name is Alia Osseiran. During quartine, I'm sheltering between my place in Boston and the woods of New Hampshire. I hope you will all take a peek at my Non-profit startup, BoxforHealth.org. I am a current dental student - full-time virtual 😛 

 

However, in the final couple weeks of ELEVATE - it will be my only class! I love the Hubspot templates that make drafting up marketing material easy. I hope ELEVATE helps me create a lot of the company's foundation. 

 

Current favorite dessert: 
Ben & Jerry's PB and Cookies - straight from the pint 

(Also its non-dairy, non-GMO, fairtrade, vegan and made with responsibly sourced packaging.)

Jon Cowley and we're based in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

 

Our startup is whatifi.io - my background is in the feature film VFX industry making all of the digital, behind-the-scenes magic. We have taken inspiration from some of the workflows and technology in this exciting industry and have applied them to.... finance.

 

Control your excitement.

 

whatifi is a highly visual, formula and spreadsheet-free, financial scenario builder. Our if-this-then-that logic allows consultants, advisors, and individuals to visually map out multiple, complex financial scenarios and then calculate the best path through the results. Think Excel meets any kind of mind-mapping like interface that you might be familiar with.

 

The goal of our time with Elevate is to up our customer acquisition game. We are outsiders in finance and decision-making and need to lean into building, tracking, and maintaining connections in this new, foreign space.

 

Zesty Cheese Doritos. Does that count?

Hi guys,

 

My name is Darragh and I'm a co-founder of EverTribe. Based out of Dublin, Ireland, we are a Point Solution tool for organisations to better book and manage their events, team building days and experiences, ultimately making it easier for them to improve staff morale and company culture.

 

We have another company in the B2C event technology space but this new venture is in the B2B space so we are hoping Elevate will help us get a better idea of how to target business clients and manage the sales process.

 

I'll never say no to a warm brownie and ice-cream 😛

 

Look forward to connecting with some of you!

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Shane and I am the CTO and co-founder of a start up based in Dublin, called Evertribe.

 

Evertribe is an event focussed employee engagment platform. It allows companies big and small to easily book and manage employee events, track engagement and reward & incentivise strong workplace engagement.

 

Myself and my business partner also run another b2c company in the events space, and have built a platform with a solid customer base. This new company is an evelution of that business.

 

From Elevate I hope to get an better grasp of my weak areas such as sales and marketing. And to gain an understanding of customer pychology in terms of website / platform engagment.

 

Favourite desert is carrot cake.

Hi Guys, 

 

I'm Ross Good & I'm delighted to be here and part of Elevate.

 

I'm Co-Founder of Booky Wooky Ltd.

 

Booky Wooky is a 100% personalised board book creation site which allows anyone with a child in their life create a bespoke board book from cover to cover exactly as they like. 

 

My main gig is a (very busy) Full Time Stay at Home Dad based in Dublin, Ireland. I gave up my sales job 4 years ago after needing 4 stents inserted into my heart at age 37 when I decided to raise our 2 daughters. [I blog about it as 'The Stented Papa' for anyone interested!]

 

I want Elevate to get me moving. To grow, attract & keep new customers. To give me the tools and framework to create killer content that provides value. To grasp how Hubspot's CRM can assist me along the journey to generate new sales.

 

Banoffee Pie all the way. Glass of wine. Jackpot.

 

Cheers folks,

Ross 

 

BTW - I'm happy to follow back for any new likes/follow etc on social... Smiley Very Happy

We're giving creators the ability to create a profitable community around their passion.

 

 COVID is increasing online audiences while also increasing people changing careers. We think more people will make money independently, pursuing their passion. To do this, they need a platform to build their community and monetize it. We're building this platform for them!

Hi All,

 

I hope that everyone is finding the Elevate program useful.

I wanted to let everyone know that as of yesterday I launched a crowdfunding campaign (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/very-puzzled-new-puzzles-that-represent-our-world#/).

 

I am super excited and also nervous.

 

I had planned to launch in April but covid and the lockdown made me decide to postpone.⁠ I hope that you can support my campaign by backing the campaign and getting yourself one of the many great perks and/ or amplifying the campaign by sharing it on social media and in your networks.⁠

Please reach out to me if you have any questions.⁠

Hello everyone,

 

I am Steven A. Rodriguez, based out of Washignton, D.C. I'm leading BloomShift, an experiencial marketing agency focused on shaping the narrative and impact for entrepreneur support organizations.

 

I'm excited to learn and grow through the ELEVATE process. It's refining my learning and execution of the flywheel model for market positioning and growth/scale.

 

As for favorite dessert, it's Flan (other names include crème caramel, flan, caramel custard, egg pudding or caramel pudding), a custard dessert with a layer of clear caramel sauce, contrasted with crème brûlée which is custard with a hard caramel layer on top.

 

Looking forward to grow and collaborate together!

Hi All,


Sorry I'm a little late to the party but wanted to first off say how much I loved the Webinar with Andrew and Bob this AM!  🙂

 

My name is Efrem Epstein but you can call me "Ef" and I'm located in NYC.

I am the CMO of Ziplyne, a CX/EX in-app guidance system (similar to a digital adoption platform) that provides your users, customers and/or employees with a "Guide On The Side" to assist in all phases of product/software Onboarding, Adoption, Retention, Training and Support.

In addition to the great advice from the Webinar, I'm also just appreciating being aroud the energy of ELEVATE.

I don't eat much dessert these days but I'm thinking of trying to make a dairy-free, sugar-free ice cream in the coming weeks...Wish me luck!

Oh and I'm about to co-launch/co-host a ZoomCast Series called "Cubicle Lift" which will focus on Mental Health In The Workplace...If you'd like to know more you can drop me a note at my LinkedIn here.
