Startups who are currently growing with Close
Why startups choose Close as their CRM
Close is a 100% remote, bootstrapped, scaling company. We build sales software that works for teams like ours––and we put startups and SMBs first.
Since 2013, we’ve been building a CRM that focuses on better communication, without the hassle of manual data entry or complex UI. Our tools double the productivity of every sales rep.
Our free data migration, simple setup, and lightning-fast onboarding help startup founders close more business, right away.
Real startup founders who scaled using Close
A lot of CRMs were too expensive for us to get going quickly as a small business. Close was different. Close has been really great to help us scale to this point. It’s been very easy to use. We can easily manage our sales process.
The fact that it’s a complete unified communication system is the biggest component for us. Email, texting, telephony—I’ve worked for companies where we had to buy options for all of these and then integrate them. This is the #1 reason we think Close is dynamite.
Great CRM for a startup SaaS. Very nimble system, and Smart Views are a game-changer.
Grow faster with our partner accelerators
We help young companies close their first customers faster: all by partnering with the world’s leading accelerators, VC funds, coworking spaces, and founder networks.
