Emma partners with Startup America

Continuing its magnanimous trend, Emma announced today that it has partnered with Startup America to offer its services, free of charge, to new companies for six months.

Emma, Inc., a Web-based communications service that helps small and midsize businesses manage their email campaigns, newsletters and online surveys, yesterday announced a national partnership with the Startup America Partnership, an organization working to help young companies grow and create jobs in America.
 
Emma is offering Startup America firms six months of free service followed by a lifetime discount of 20 percent, plus a free customizable email template. Emma will also serve as an official provider of email services for Startup America.
 
“We know the fast-paced, entrepreneurial lifestyle well. In eight years, Emma has grown from an idea two guys talked about over coffee into a national company with offices in five cities and tens of thousands of customers,” said Emma Co-founder and CEO Clint Smith. “Having trekked – as much as any company can – out of our startup phase, it’s our hope that this partnership will help other startups better communicate during this make-it-or-break-it time."
 
“Startup America’s goal is to work with tens of thousands of startups by the end of 2012, and it’s our goal to help as many of these companies as we can pursue email marketing more simply and affordably,” Smith added.
 
This announcement was made at a meeting of the Startup America board at the White House yesterday.

Emma also provides free service to a number of non-profits dubbed the Emma 25.
