SendGrid is a cloud-based service that replaces your company’s email infrastructure and provides everything you need to operate a reliable and scalable outbound email delivery system. With SendGrid, developers can focus on building better systems and earning more revenue, while reducing costs in engineering and infrastructure management.

SendGrid makes it easy for developers to add email-based features into their applications. Integration is quick and simple via SMTP or API. Whether you’re sending transactional emails (automated welcome messages, notifications, password reminders) or a newsletter to announce a launch or feature release, SendGrid can help. They even have an API that lets your app accept email from your users, so you can create deeper engagement and a richer customer experience while utilizing the simplicity and universal familiarity of email.

As graduates of the 2009 TechStars program, SendGrid has benefited from a strong start up community and culture. By continuing to work closely with the startup community, they hope to create better and more effective information, tools and services that will make email delivery and web development even easier.  Both Bizspark and SendGrid are global sponsors of StartUp weekend, aiming to bring together passionate entrepreneurs across the globe. 

And now, as SendGrid becomes a BizSpark Network Partner, they are offering a special introductory offer of a free Bronze plan (40,000 emails/month) for six months for BizSpark member startups.
