Kate Scanlan

Sr. Director of Marketing


“I joined StartUp Marketer because collaboration is a powerful catalyst for innovation and professional evolution. By sharing your knowledge and expertise, you’re naturally challenged to question and refine your own point of view. Plus, I get to pick the brains of my peers! Who would pass that up?”

Jonathan Hazy

Demand Generation Manager


“I joined StartUp Marketer because I wanted to be a part of a community of marketers I could continue learning from and who share more in common with me than the 50+ marketing teams I always hear about at trade shows.”

Adam Blacker

Communications + Media Relations Strategist 🚀


“I joined StartUp Marketer because everyone needs a little inspiration from those who have been in their shoes before and I was no different. I know I would have relished this resource had it been around when I was first starting out.”
