Fort Collins, Colo., April 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

MAPRagency (MAPR), Boulder’s oldest and largest technology and B2B public relations and digital marketing agency, today announced the opening of a new office in Fort Collins to both accommodate the firm's rapid growth and better serve clients in Northern Colorado. The company also has an office in Denver.

To celebrate its opening, MAPR will host an open house reception at its new office space, located inside The Articulate (324 Jefferson St.), on May 7. The reception will kick off at 3 p.m. with an hour-long workshop, “Four Steps to Obtaining Media Coverage For Your Startup.” Wine, beer and light snacks will be served. 

“Fort Collins is ripe with fantastic, creative entrepreneurs who are leading the way for innovation in Northern Colorado,” said Doyle Albee, MAPRagency president and CEO. “We have been warmly welcomed to the community, and we look forward to continuing to contribute and grow with other businesses here.”

MAPR has been working with several companies in the region, as well as participating in events like Fort Collins Startup Week, PitchNo.Co and New Tech Fort Collins meetups since 2017. The agency’s current roster of clients in Northern Colorado includes:

    • LaunchNo.CO - a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing and supporting entrepreneurship and small businesses in Northern Colorado.
    • everHuman - a company that empowers technology users and work teams to "delight in their digital lives" through expert advice, consulting, workshops, tutorials and downloadable content.
    • ItyDity - the premier music production network and marketplace, connecting artists with producers and session musicians through one-of-a-kind song production contests.
    • Jalapeño Inventive - a company that leverages cryptocurrency in mobile gaming to benefit both the developer and the end user by streamlining in-game revenue and purchase opportunities.
    • Vortic Watch Company - a small batch, custom watch manufacturing and vintage restoration company.

“During Fort Collins Startup Week, MAPR helped us make our PitchNo.CO event a success,” said Jana Sanchez, executive director of LaunchNo.CO. “We wouldn’t have been able to recruit as many talented new companies to participate nor would the event have received the media attention it did without MAPR’s contributions. I am thrilled that MAPR now has a presence in Fort Collins and will help to tell the stories of the great businesses making Northern Colorado home.”

According to a 2015 study by NerdWallet, Fort Collins ranked sixth in the list of America's Most Innovative Tech Hubs. Based off of the number of patents per 1,000 residents, financial support for innovation and proximity of cluster startups, the city’s propinquity to Colorado State University allowed Fort Collins to rank in the top 10. Fort Collins was also ranked fourth by Bloomberg’s Brain Concentration Index.
