B2B sales company, Saltbox, has received a $500,000 investment from Traction Capital to finish out their $675,000 raise. The Minneapolis-based company is revolutionizing the way B2B organizations improve the buying experience of their customers. As Saltbox continues to grow, Traction Capital looks forward to working closely with their team.
Saltbox is a Salesforce startup that helps to digitize, personalize and automate a B2B consumer’s buying experience. With their extensive knowledge of Salesforce, they are able to improve storefront experiences and purchases, in addition to streamlining order management. As B2B buyer personas shifts, B2B buyers are expecting more B2C– like experiences and Saltbox assists organizations in identifying and catering to that shift.
“The investment and partnership from Traction Capital will play a pivotal role in helping Saltbox accelerate our mission of helping B2B companies reimagine the buying experiences of their customers through the use of Salesforce. I’m also excited to bring Traction’s experience as operators to our board of directors, as their guidance will be just as important as their capital as we look to scale the business and capitalize on the tremendous opportunity for rapid growth that the salesforce ecosystem provides,” says David Blue, founder of Saltbox.
The company strives to deliver engaging, frictionless, B2C-like buying experiences to their customers. Unlike their competitors, Saltbox specializes in B2B commerce and order management, with capabilities spanning the entire Salesforce platform. Their expertise and ability to serve end-to-end buyer transformation use-cases also helps them stand out. Saltbox’s three main industries of focus include manufacturing/consumer goods, high-tech/software and medical devices/pharma.
For the immediate future David’s focus will be expanding their software, growing their team, and continuing to innovate within the company. They are currently hiring a Salesforce Account Executive, multiple positions within the delivery organization, and will continue to post as more positions become available.

Both experts in their field, Traction Capital and Saltbox are eager to join forces. “We are excited by David’s extensive experience in the field and his ambition to make Saltbox succeed. Traction Capital looks forward to helping Saltbox grow their team and continue to innovate with the implementation of EOS. Our Traction team believes Saltbox has what it takes to transform the way B2B organizations interact and we are eager to help them accomplish that,” says Shane Erickson, founder and Managing Partner of Traction Capital.
