We've built SaaS companies before, and struggled to get the skills, advice and insight we needed to grow.
Our investors were too busy, our team was stretched too thin, and we made countless mistakes on our journey to scale - mistakes we could have avoided.
That's why we founded Cobloom: to use our experience, expertise and insight to help SaaS companies take the guesswork out of growth.
Between us, our team has:
Will has been building and marketing SaaS solutions since 2005. In 2006, he founded online storage company, File Den. Using a combination of organic growth strategies, Will bootstrapped the company to over 3 million registered users worldwide. No mean feat in a pre-social world.
Witnessing an increasing commoditisation of online storage, Will went on to negotiate the company's sale, and in July 2011, File Den was acquired by CX, Inc.
A start-up person and entrepreneur, Will keeps himself on the cutting edge of all things SaaS. He's a full stack growth expert, possessing design, marketing, product development, web development, sales & customer success experience.
Outside of work, he keeps himself active with a passion for skiing, weightlifting and bouldering.
Martin is an experienced business consultant, and learned his trade delivering off the shelf ERP software to the enterprise, including Diageo, Ingersoll-Rand and Rolls-Royce. With a passion for delivering value, and having seen huge business benefits from software led process improvements, co-founding Cobloom with Will was a natural fit.
He understands how healthy, profitable software businesses should be run, and the impact a great consultant can have. At Cobloom, Martin uses this experience to diagnose growth problems. He works closely with prospective partners to help them identify which approaches are the best fit - for both the business, and their customers.
When away from work, Martin is a keen tennis player, and an avid Wolverhampton Wanderers fan.
