Business Support

MTI has partnered with two of the leading business service companies to provide discounts to MTI clients. HubSpot is the leading Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and marketing automation software for small businesses. Carta is the largest provider of cap table management and corporate governance compliance in the US. Both companies offer great discounts to eligible MTI clients.

It also provides access to world-class support from HubSpot experts. In addition, HubSpot offers an integrated platform for startups with access to more than 500 software integrations (many at startup-friendly prices) as well as the opportunity to build an integration on the HubSpot platform.
