About Pirates, Inc.

Our Mission

The pirate business was ripe for disruption. Instead of mindlessly searching for treasure or taking loot from other ships, Pirates, Inc. wanted to find a better way to grow. Now, we are making meaningful relationships with merchants, sailors, and villagers to build a trading enterprise that allows everyone to share in the spoils thanks to HubSpot.

Captain Kathryn is not only a visionary, she’s helping Pirates, Inc. grow better by  remembering that her crew and customers are the true treasure. At the heart of Pirates, Inc. the Captain keeps us sailing forward into uncharted, digital waters.

Our Story

Seven years ago, the whole operation was just the Captain, her first mate, and a couple parrots on a tiny ship. Fast forward to today, Pirates, Inc. has ships across the seven seas with outposts all over the globe (with a new French Riviera outpost coming soon)!

Around year three, Pirates, Inc. was seeing unprecedented growth. Everyone wanted to do business with kinder, nicer pirates. Our tiny crew was stretched thin, customers were falling through the planks, sales reps were bogged down trying to integrate different systems, teams weren’t on the same page, and we just could not keep up. Then, the unthinkable happened… we lost ships to Davy Jones’ Locker, customers lost hope that we could continue to provide amazing personalized experiences as we scaled—we needed a better way to grow. Enter: HubSpot CRM platform.
HubSpot helped us get our CRM in shipshape, our crews aligned, and our customers once again seeing Pirates, Inc as the treasure in a sea of blue. These are some key things that HubSpot CRM helped us swab the decks with:
