The Quarterly Snapshot #2

May 15, 2019


Newsletter – Issue 2 – May 2019

I really think things are going to slow down a bit after this. Right?

Famous last words? Well, hey if we weren’t up for a crazy ride, we wouldn’t be in a startup! “Things” didn’t slow down and it doesn’t look like they will in any near future.

Even amid the chaos, we realized the importance of taking a step back and evaluating what drives our company and our culture? We realized hands down, it’s our customers — the admins and developers who are an essential part of our product development. You come first in our book. And we love to hear from you! What drives you?

Hope to see you all at TDX!
Jennifer Mercer – CEO

The Metazoa team is thrilled to participate in the Salesforce Accelerate Program.

The Accelerate Program is designed to provide mentorship, support, and exposure to Salesforce experts and their close-knit ecosystem.

Metazoa is among 11 other amazing Salesforce ISV partners in the 5th Accelerate program where companies are voted on by a committee of Salesforce professionals after the application process is complete.

We are humbled that we were selected to be part of this program and so excited to take part in all it has to offer.

Salesforce Accelerate is led by a network of subject matter experts with extensive experience both within the Salesforce and startup communities.

After three months of learning from the best and aligning with the Salesforce excellence, we will graduate from the program and make way for a new batch of incredible partners to take part.

Salesforce Accelerate, previously known as The Salesforce Incubator, has already successfully graduated 42 companies.
