We are thrilled to announce the launch of Salesforce Accelerate Grow Cohort 11! We have several seasoned Salesforce partners who have joined us on this journey, and who are excited to grow their AppExchange business.

Salesforce Accelerate Grow is the AppExchange accelerator program for app entrepreneurs who want to scale and grow their business in the Salesforce ecosystem. The program is designed to helpAppExchange partners increase revenue run-rates and improve operational efficiency by driving strategic alignment and providing access to key Salesforce advisors and mentors.


Cohort 11 will help our partners align with Salesforce Industries by providing participants with the tools, resources and coaching to effectively position and deliver their solution for a targeted industry. The partners selected for the program will focus on developing their go-to-market strategy across Financial Services, Healthcare and Life Sciences, Retail, and Public Sector.

Partners were selected for their desire to strategically align with Salesforce, their high potential for growth, and their desire to participate in the program.

The Salesforce ISV Program is the gold standard for SaaS partner programs and we’re excited to supercharge our partnership through the Accelerate Grow Program.” – Matt Rausenberger VP Partner Alliances, Swrve

While many startups run into trouble within their first few years (and 21.5% of startups fail within their first year*), these partners have beat the odds and have thriving businesses.

But what makes them so successful? To kick off this cohort, we asked our cohort members to share why they chose to join this program, and what they have learned in the time it has taken to get to their first $500k.

Their growth boiled down to 2 main things: target an industry vertical to accelerate growth, and be focused on your customers.

You can’t always win them all but, the more laser-focused you are, the deeper you can dive into that industry, and the more you can accelerate your growth. Many of our Cohort 11 partners have seen success by focusing on a particular industry. This is why they have opted to align with Salesforce Industries over the course of our 9-week Salesforce Accelerate program.

“Dot Compliance is 100% focused on the HLS industries, and together with Salesforce, we are able to handle the industry’s unique and fast-paced needs – streamlining processes and enabling collaboration across entire ecosystems. Together we can help get new products into market faster and safer, and help turn valuable data into actionable insights” – Gal Haselkorn, VP Sales and Business Development, Dot Compliance

Some of these partners have historically had a horizontal approach. However, to scale in the next part of their business, they see a vertical focus as key to driving more revenue and industry credibility.

The program is divided into 4 units: Strategic Alignment, Positioning & Messaging, Operational Excellence, and GTM strategy to support their continued Salesforce Industry success.

“We believe a tighter alignment with Salesforce will enable us to increase the growth of our sales.” – Joshua Millsapps, CEO, Millsapps, Ballinger & Associates

Our Cohort 11 companies are all about their customers, and rightfully so! When you are building your business, customers are essential to validate your business model, and generating much-needed revenue to fuel your initial operations.

Some of the greatest customers can also become your greatest champions as well, and champion customers will lead to lucrative partnerships. Our Salesforce Accelerate Partners are a prime example!

But while being customer-centric is an important part of their partner success, the customer is not king. In fact, sometimes they may not even be the right customer!

As you move along with your AppExchange Journey just remember that you are not alone. Salesforce is chock-full of resources for our partner success, as well as an amazing community. Learning from other partners’ experience, such as our Cohort 11 participants can support you on your journey.

Building a successful ISV business takes time and success does not come overnight. Keep learning, and expanding your Salesforce network, and you will be there in no time.

A partnership with Salesforce and success with Salesforce AppExchange can take many different forms. No partner journey is alike, but it is empowered by the insights that our partners share with one another.
