CubeSocial has been chosen as a Top 20 Start-up of 2011 by entrepreneur magazine Startups. The list was announced on 20 December and includes leading British start-ups across all sectors.
Linda Cheung, CubeSocial CEO commented “I’m delighted that CubeSocial has been recognised as a one of the UK’s top 20 start-ups. This is fantastic way to end 2011 and great recognition for all the team at a national level.”
“For many businesses this year growth has been hit by the economic permafrost, but that hasn’t stopped a number of green shoots from pushing through” said Georgina-Kate Adams of Startups. “As Startups introduces our 20 best UK start-ups of 2011, we acknowledge the tenacity, creativity and resilience of these entrepreneurs.”
CubeSocial’s innovative social CRM software allows professionals to win new business through social media. “At its heart all business is about relationships. CubeSocial allows professionals to cut through the noise of social media in order to identify new prospects and build profitable business relationships,” says Linda.
CubeSocial takes the best of traditional contact management tools and combines that with social media to enable companies to win new business from their online communities.
Since its launch in mid-2011, CubeSocial has garnered accolades from customers and press alike. CubeSocial was named a “Top 20 Idea” in The Guardian, selected as a “Company to Watch” in the The Business Magazine’s TV250 awards and is a finalist in the Local Business Accelerators competition.
CubeSocial was founded by former Morgan Stanley Executive Director Linda Cheung and former Microsoft Lead Program Manager Mark Bower to capitalize on the growing Social CRM market that Gartner predicts will grow to 1bn USD in 2012.
