Sigstr, an e-mail marketing startup based in Indianapolis, says it has raised $5 million in Series A funding.

The investment was led by Hyde Park Venture Partners, which was joined by HubSpot (NYSE: HUBS), Battery Ventures, Grand Ventures, and High Alpha Capital. Investors have pumped a total of $7 million into Sigstr, a company spokeswoman says in an e-mail to Xconomy.

Sigstr’s software turns corporate e-mail signatures into a marketing channel, where staff can reinforce branding strategies and tailor sales pitches.

Sigstr says its customers include Angie’s List, Terminus, United Way, and the Indiana Pacers basketball team.
