Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah say they founded HubSpot to bring business' sales and marketing tactics into the 21st century. The company's software assists with generating and analyzing inbound marketing content--think blogs, surveys, emails, and SEO-friendly articles, which are geared toward bringing customers to companies' websites. But the quest to win more eyeballs is a popular one. Software giant Salesforce reportedly looked into acquiring HubSpot at one point, before buying a HubSpot competitor in 2013. By focusing its efforts on reaching midsize and small business, HubSpot hopes that it will be able to stand out from its competitors. Note: employee count as of Dec. 31, 2015
