Start Co. Announces Partnership with SendGrid


We are happy to announce a new Start Co. partner, SendGrid.

SendGrid, founded in 2009 after graduating from the TechStars program, has developed a cloud-based service that solves the challenge of email delivery by delivering emails on behalf of companies. SendGrid eliminates the complexity of sending email, saving time and money, while providing reliable delivery to the inbox.

SendGrid is the world’s largest Email Infrastructure as a Service provider.  Their email delivery service moves 2% of the world’s non-spam email (over 13 billion emails / month) for more than 150,000 companies including technology leaders like Pinterest, Spotify, and Uber.  SendGrid boosts email deliverability skills with best practice guides, videos, webinars and documentation.

SendGrid helps startups make sure their important email gets delivered.  It allows them to send transactional email without having to maintain email servers.  SendGrid manages all of the technical details; from scaling the infrastructure to ISP outreach and reputation monitoring to whitelist services and real time analytics.

As part of our partnership SendGrid will offer the startups in our Accelerator Program access to the SendGrid Accelerate program. As part of the program, they are entitled to 12 months of SendGrid’s Gold Package (up to 300,000 emails/month) absolutely free. In addition to free email credits, our startups will be able to connect to SendGrid mentors to gain access to their best practices and knowledge.

We would like to thank SendGrid for their support of Start Co. and our startups.
