The HBS Association of Boston, in a joint event with the HBS TechMedia Club, welcomes Brian Halligan, CEO & Founder of Hubspot, the leading Search Engine Optimizing (SEO), social media and web presence advising firm. Brian's talk, "Everything I Wished I Learned About Startups and Being a CEO At Sloan", includes many of the lessons that he wished he learned earlier on in his career.
Prior to starting HubSpot, Brian worked as a venture partner at Longworth Ventures where he worked with many small businesses helping them build scalable sales and marketing machines. Brian spent 4 years at Groove Networks where he joined pre-revenue as VP of Sales and grew the business to a $20m annual rate until being acquired by Microsoft. Prior to Groove Networks, Brian worked at Parametric Technology Corporation where he worked in a variety of sales, marketing, and channels functions for over a decade. Brian's most interesting role at PTC was in starting the Pacific Rim organization while living in Hong Kong in 1993. Five years later, Brian was SVP of the Pacific Rim for PTC where he built an $80 million business and had 200 employees.
Brian coined the term inbound marketing and is author of a book entitled Inbound Marketing: Get Found Using Google, Blogs, and Social Media published by Wiley in October of 2009. Brian holds a BSEE from the UVM and an MBA from MIT's Sloan School of Management. Brian is an EIR at MIT's Entrepreneurship Center and serves on the board of directors of HOPe and MITX.
