Meet Matter Communications, A #BSW15 Sponsor!
We are excited to introduce Matter Communications as a sponsor for Boulder Startup Week! Boulder Startup Week is a free, five-day celebration of the Boulder community that builds momentum around entrepreneurship. Starting next Monday, more than 120 events will take place in downtown Boulder. Thanks to our sponsor Matter Communications for making this possible!
Scott Signore founded matter Communications back in 2003, in Newburyport, MA. Eleven years ago, Scott wanted to create a different PR agency, and Matter was born. His new approach proved to be very successful, as Matter currently has five locations around the US, and we are thrilled to announce that their fourth satellite office will be opening in downtown Boulder!
“Boulder is unlike any other tech hub in the country, and that’s what we love about it and its entrepreneurial people,” Signore said. “In working with Boulder-based clients over the years, we’ve long marveled at the deep sense of community, and the way the region’s brightest minds challenge one another to evolve and improve together. We’re excited to be a partner in that evolution.”
Matter’s office launch kicks off with a partnership with Galvanize to spread knowledge and foster opportunity all next week during Boulder Startup Week. You can also find Scott Signore at his Startup Stories talk on Monday afternoon at eTown.
We had the chance to speak with Matter last week and discuss their new announcement. We asked, “Why Boulder?” They responded saying that Boulder was chosen for its vitality, strategic location, and for the amazing opportunities within the startup community. Boulder has it’s own little ecosystem, and they are excited to be part of such a great community. Matter was blown away by the conversations and graciousness invoked by the people they met in Boulder. Boulder is such an open, sharing, collaborative, cohesive community. They said Boulder was “… intoxicating with the amount of smart people working on cool stuff.” They also mentioned that it’s “…much more fun to build a brand than maintain one.” We have a feeling they might be doing a lot of that in Boulder with startups!
Matter Communications works with a wide variety of clients, from CVS Pharmacy, to small and mid size companies that are looking to build a stronger foothold in their market. Matter offers a full suite of integrated public relations services, both online and offline. They have three departments, PR and social media, Studio-C (in-house creative services), and a full search marketing division.
Matter Communications is one of the fastest-growing public relations and social media firms in the country that has won five ‘Agency of the Year’ accolades in the past two years. This news also comes on the heels of Matter’s announcement late last year that it was honored as one of Massachusetts’ best employers in The Boston Globe’s annual Top Places to Work magazine. So, do we have your attention yet? Matter is currently hiring for two Boulder-based positions, click here to learn more. They will also be participating in the Tuesday Job Fair, from 2pm-4pm at Lyfe Kitchen, so stop by and say hello!
