Think marketing tech vendor growth is finished? No, it’s Finnish!

The above graphic and the following guest post were produced by Henri Syvänen and the team at Avaus, a leading Nordic marketing services firm.

What’s better than a marketing tech stack? Your marketing org stack

We’ve been running The Stackies for three years now, where we’ve invited marketers to send in a single slide that visually illustrates their marketing tech stack. We run it as an awards program and a drive for charity (the last Stackies program raised $7,800 for Girls Who Code), with a little friendly competition and trophies at the end.
