About

If you run B2B Marketing in a Tech or SaaS company, you might sell to a wide variety of personas and industries or concentrate only on niche pockets, nationally or internationally. That challenge appeals to us because it pretty much sums us up; hailing from cities dotted throughout Europe and South America as we do.

Founded in 2015 by two guys with years of B2B marketing experience on both sides the client/agency fence, Squaredot has grown, quickly. Recruiting the top international Digital Marketing masters graduates of UCD's Smurfit Business School and DCU, writers with inquisitive B2B journalistic backgrounds and designers with branding, motion graphics & illustration expertise, all helped us become Gold Tier Hubspot Partners. 

Pretty soon we started winning clients from Ireland, the UK and mainland Europe and winning several awards like the Hubspot Award and the International Grand Prize in Graphic Design.  In layman’s terms, we cook up tasty content and deliver it on a silver digital platter for your audience - whoever they are, wherever they are or however many they number.
