Since HubSpot was founded, we’ve been called a lot of things, but quiet isn’t one of them. So you can imagine that the prospect of enforcing airtight rules and regulations on what could be blogged, tweeted about, and shared by our team seemed daunting as a prerequisite to becoming a public company. (For those who haven’t lived through a quiet period before, the IPO quiet period is enforced by the SEC to protect investors by limiting the marketing of the IPO to the official documents, meaning that companies and their employees cannot promote or share any content related to the IPO during the process of going public.)
Now that the IPO quiet period has come to a close and in celebration of Throwback Thursday, we thought we would let you know some of the articles we wished we could have shared, but were unable to during the quiet period
