Social relationship management platform Nimble is launching a program that would see it offer startups a year of free access to its social relationship software. As part of the company’s corporate commitment to helping nurture startups, Nimble will be offering them a complimentary 2-user premium version of Nimble with 100 GB additional storage for 12 months (worth US$1800) through over fifty partner startup accelerators.
With Nimble, companies can build their contact database of not just potential sales leads, but also influencers both online and offline, analysts, editors, bloggers, and partners. The platform also integrates with many social networks and social monitoring platforms such as Foursquare and Hootsuite, and even proposal collaboration with QuoteRoller, amongst many others.
“Global future financial growth is dependent on successful technology startups,” says CEO of Nimble Jon Ferrara, who previously successfully built two global technology companies, including GoldMine Software, a pioneering CRM company. “Young startups are traditionally early adopters of new technology and business practices, and are the ideal candidates to use Nimble and our social business best practices to effectively scale their brands and turn relationships into revenue.”
“With Nimble, teams can collectively engage with partners, prospects and customers and turn social conversations into business opportunities,” adds Ferrara.
Partner startup accelerators include TechStars, Y Combinator, DEMO, Global Accelerator Network, LaunchPad LA, Startup Boot Camp, Springboard Brandery, F6S, MuckerLab, Chinaccelerator, BoomStartup, 10xelerator (10x) and StartupYard.
“The best startups tirelessly work to promote their brands,” shares Neal Silverman, senior vice president of DEMO. “I like the approach Nimble is taking, providing an engagement platform that allows them to switch message and platform as appropriate, automatically connecting the conversations the entire company is having with their community to the contacts they’re having them with.”
