Introhive | Our Story

The inspiration for our story stemmed from years of experience with sales and business development teams struggling to understand who-knows-who and wading through inaccurate or incomplete data within their CRMs. Armed with the belief that there was a better way, Jody decided to make it happen.

For the first several years of business, Introhive practiced what it preached, using its own software and encouraging its teams to leverage their internal networks. That’s how the first deals were won!

As its first decade comes to a close, Introhive has gone beyond cleaning up CRM data and making sales and BD teams lives easier through automation to deliver AI-powered solutions that accelerate revenue and transform businesses.
