    PITCH 2010 Finalist ObjectiveMarketer, Founded by Amita Paul, Acquired by Emailvision

    Women 2.0 Startup Competition Finalist and Presenter at PITCH 2010, ObjectiveMarketer (founded by Amita Paul) was acquired recently by Emailvision, a leader in email marketing software.

    Women 2.0 gets the scoop from Amita Paul (pictured, right) on the exciting acquisition and her entrepreneur’s story.

    Women 2.0: A few months ago, you presented Objective Marketer at Women 2.0 PITCH Night. What stage was your company in then, and how did you get to where you are now?

    Amita Paul: Objective Marketer was born out of my fascination for emerging media and passion for online marketing in general. Earlier on, I had managed product innovations in email and direct marketing – this experience was very helpful in visualizing the needs of email marketers as they transition to social media. I started ObjectiveMarketer in early 2009 with a public launch in September 2009. We had several enterprises, including Fortune 100 companies already executing their social media campaigns with ObjectiveMarketer even before the public launch.
