The Brand History

About 20 years ago, a couple of web designers, Ben Chestnut and Dan Kurzius saw an opportunity in the market.

In the early 2000’s email software for businesses was expensive and clunky and reserved for the bigger end of town.

If you were a small business wanting to leverage this growing phenomenon that was email, forget about it.

Then Mailchimp was born, enabling the “small fish” to play in the “big fish” pond, with high-end tools, resources and technology made available at affordable prices.
