They are not small in any way. Probably one of the hottest crm saas plays out there with backing from marquee investors like Accel, Sequoia and Google Ventures. Probably will be bought out by salesforce at some point but for now they have a good product and have been making strong inroads into the middle / lower end of the enterprise customer service / relationship market.

Wow how timely. Thanks, SAC1! I guess this would bode better for me? Or it would have been better if I had joined a while prior for more gain?

Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today?

Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?

Neither of my parents have a 401k, investments, or savings. They have nothing. I want to help them retire at 65 which would be about 15 years away. I’m looking to put about $15k/ year until then into an account for them. A couple questions i have though: 1. What type of investment account would be best to maximize? 2. Once gifted to them, will they be taxed if they receive a certain amount? I have little to no knowledge in investing so I’m open to any other ideas and/or advice.
