HubSpot has spent a lot of time at the winner’s table this past month. In less than 30 days the marketing software company has gathered eight awards acknowledging its innovative leadership, technology, and company culture.

On May 22 the Boston Globe honored both HubSpot co-founders Dharmesh Shah and Brian Halligan. HubSpot CTO Dharmesh Shah was named the top innovator in the high tech category and CEO Brian Halligan was named a runner-up in the media and advertising category in the Globe 100 top innovators list.

In addition, Rich Miner was named top media and advertising innovator and Gail Goodman rounded out that category in the third position. Miner is HubSpot’s investor from Google Ventures and Goodman is on HubSpot’s Board of Directors.

This was the second year in a row that HubSpot won this award. Icing on the cake was during the awards breakfast when HubSpot also took home  the award for “Loudest Table.”

The awards didn’t stop there. On June 16, Brian Halligan was named an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year New England. Halligan will head to Las Vegas to compete for the national title in November.

Also on June 16, the same day that HubSpot acquired marketing-automation company Performable, the latter company was victorious at the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange Innovation Awards, winning Most Insightful: Analytics and Business Intelligence; and Innovative Go-To-Market Strategy.

HubSpot wrapped up the month by winning two Telly Awards for outstanding achievement for its original short online videos. HubSpot, along with Adelie Studios, produced the Captain Inbound Animated Series.

Halligan says these awards don’t just honor him and Dharmesh Shah, and Performable’s co-founder David Cancel, but all of the employees of HubSpot who work hard day in and day out. “Even as we continue to grow to more than 250 employees, HubSpot is a family, and we work as one and win as one. I couldn’t be more proud of this team as we are honored by all of these awards,” said Halligan.
