Enterprise SaaS Startup Allbound to join lineup of premier tech and creative companies headquartered in Phoenix’ entrepreneurial district
Allbound, an innovative partner sales and marketing software startup founded by local entrepreneur Scott Salkin, has won six months of free office space at 111 W. Monroe. The company will share the newly renovated mid-century modern building with other entrepreneurial and innovative tenants like Uber, Cannon Design and Inspire Data Solutions. Allbound is set to open shop at The Monroe Building on July 13, where they’ll relocate their growing team to Downtown Phoenix.
“Our team is honored and thrilled to have been chosen as the winners of the Startup PHX Challenge. When you take into account the number of impressive entrepreneurs who are helping turn the Valley into a startup hotspot, it’s really humbling,” says Scott Salkin, CEO and Founder of Allbound. “We couldn’t be happier to be moving to downtown Phoenix. With ASU and UA, the light rail, more and more technology companies, and a growing entertainment and restaurant district, it’ll be great for our culture, our recruiting and our customers.”
Allbound’s software-as-a-service (SaaS0 solution helps organizations accelerate revenue growth through their partners, resellers, franchisees, brokers, agents and other indirect sales channels. The mobile-friendly platform provides unprecedented data collection and business intelligence on channel performance, allowing both manufacturers and their partners to measure performance and quickly fix shortcomings. Allbound’s cloud-based, subscription model is built to extend the power of partnerships to everyone – from startups to Fortune 500’s.
“We are excited to welcome Allbound to the Monroe community,” said Tim O’Neill, part of the ownership group behind 111 W. Monroe. “We were looking to award free office space to the startup that would benefit the most and contribute significantly in accelerating the firm to the next level. Our selection panel was thoroughly impressed by Allbound’s business plan, momentum, and early success. We are excited to be able to support their growth by welcoming the company into our hub of innovation at 111 W. Monroe and bring yet another growing business with disruptive technology to Downtown Phoenix,” he said.
Allbound will call 111 W. Monroe their new home with a fully-furnished 1,200 square foot, 12th floor office space featuring panoramic city and mountain views. In addition to six free months office space, Allbound will receive complete office furniture, provided by Goodman’s Interior Structures, another Phoenix-based company passionate about doing good and fueling growth.
“It’s these types of opportunities, provided by established leaders in our hometown business community, that mean so much to a startup’s ability to gain traction, grow and give back to the community themselves,” Salkin said.
111 W. Monroe has quickly become a leader in Phoenix’ entrepreneurial ecosystem. With additions like Allbound, it continues to attract innovative companies in emerging sectors like design, technology, and marketing—and the building wants to add even more game changing companies to the mix. The locally owned building offers a premier downtown location, first class renovations, extensive underground and street parking with valet, proximity to light rail and bike sharing, and ground-level retail amenities.
“We are excited to have Allbound join our exciting City of Phoenix entrepreneurial ecosystem,” said Phoenix City Councilman Daniel Valenzuela. “They are a wonderful addition to the growing number of transformative startups in downtown Phoenix. 111 W. Monroe’s support of the StartUp PHX Challenge is just another example of Phoenix becoming the most generous community for entrepreneurs. Innovators and entrepreneurs like Allbound are the economic engine that will drive our economy into the 21st century.”
