Salesforce ExactTarget Marketing Cloud Company history
More than a decade ago, three businessmen recognized that organizations needed a way to communicate with their customers using a "new" medium called email. ExactTarget was the result. ExactTarget was founded in late 2000, quickly growing to a $11.5 million digital marketing automation company in its’ second year. The ExactTarget Interactive Marketing Hub was released in 2010 after a redesign of its’ user interface.
ExactTarget filed for an IPO in 2007, but raised $145 million in funding and withdrew its filing two years later.In 2012 ExactTarget raised $161.5 million going to the Stock market, before being acquired by Salesforce for $2.5 billion in 2013. Companies acquired by ExactTarget include CoTweet, Pardot, iGoDigital and Keymail Marketing. In October 2014, just before the Salesforce Dreamforcce conference, the solution was renamed to Salesforce Marketing Cloud.
