Joins Forces with Thriving Tech Campus Galvanize For Boulder Startup Week; Appoints Veteran PR Pro Maria Brown to Lead Office
(Newburyport, MA) – May 6, 2015 – Matter Communications, an award-winning PR and social media firm with in-house creative services and search marketing groups, today launched a dedicated office in Boulder, CO, its fourth U.S. office and the first in the burgeoning Rocky Mountain region.
Leading the Boulder office will be Vice President Maria Brown, who has worked on several CO-based companies and who will relocate from the company’s headquarters in New England to spearhead the initiative.
Boulder is home to an aggressively growing tech and consumer startup scene with the largest number of startups per capita than any other U.S. region, including Boston, San Francisco and New York, according to a study published by the Wall Street Journal. Nearby tech hotbeds in both Fort Collins (second in the U.S. only to Boulder) and Denver (sixth in the nation for startups per capita) provide a rich tapestry of opportunity for the PR firm in the region, from startups to established consumer and B2B companies, according to Matter Founder and CEO Scott Signore.
“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 admired 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.”
To that end, Matter’s office launch kicks off with a sponsorship with modern tech campus Galvanize to spread knowledge and foster opportunity during Boulder Startup Week, a free, five-day celebration of the Boulder community that builds momentum around entrepreneurship. During the week, the Firm will participate in the following initiatives:
- Fireside Chat with Scott Signore – Monday, May 11th at 1pm, eTown(1535 Spruce Street Boulder, CO 80302); Scott will discuss the launch of Matter’s Boulder office and what it takes to grow a company in today’s competitive market.

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.
