SOFTWARE STARTUP KINETIC GROWTH CALLS SANDBOX HOME

Sandbox Suites  is home to some pretty awesome companies. Kinetic Growth is a great example of the innovation that is happening within the SBS coworking community.

Kinetic Growth focuses on building software on salesforce.com‘s Force.com platform. They provide a renewals and recurring billing application and an eCommerce application that extend the capabilities of salesforce.com‘s Sales Cloud CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software. Since Kinetic Growth’s applications are 100% native to Salesforce, all renewals and online sales instantaneously share product, price, and customer information with customer’s existing Salesforce database. Management, sales reps, and web customers all work from a single unified set of data.

The company has called Sandbox Suites home for the past two years. “Sandbox has been a great place for us to grow our business,” said Kinetic Growth cofounder Samir Gupta. “The facilities, flexibility, networking, and, most importantly, the staff at Sandbox have all helped us tremendously. Roman, Dominick, Melissa and all the other staff create a supportive environment that goes well beyond simply providing desks, lights and wi-fi. In many ways they act as part of the Kinetic Growth team.”
