The VentureFizz Podcast: Ellie Mirman - CMO at Crayon

For this episode of The VentureFizz Podcast, I interviewed Ellie Mirman, CMO of Crayon in Boston.

Ellie was one of the early, early employees at HubSpot, as she joined the company right after they raised their Series A round of funding and were only about 10-15 employees.  She saw the full lifecycle of the company in terms of their growth to an IPO and wore lots of different hats along the way.

Since HubSpot, she was the VP of Marketing at Toast for a little over two years and is now the CMO at Crayon, a market and competitive intelligence platform company that just raised $5M in venture funding.

In this episode, we cover topics like:

  • Those fun videos HubSpot was making during the early days of the company (the Alanis Morrissette one was classic) 
  • Why she loves joining early stage companies 
  • The current state of the marketing industry
  • Career advice for marketers looking to become a CMO
  • And a lot more!
