We’re excited to announce that Promoboxx has been nominated in the “Best New Start-Up” category by New England Venture Capital Association (NEVCA) and their NEVY awards. It is great to be nominated alongside our TechStars Boston 2011 buddies at Kinvey. Srav and I sat across from each other during the program, so it is great …

The legendary comedy of Mitch Hedberg (1968 – 2005) is often played at Promoboxx HQ. So, it was cool to discover that one of his jokes nails the Promoboxx benefits.

We’re thrilled to be hosting a FutureM panel called “Small Start-Ups Can Work With Big Brands.” The panel is on Tuesday, October 23, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. For this panel we wanted to break from the typical start-up pitch sessions of “here’s my company, please invest,” to presentations by marketing start-ups who …

From the CEO’s Soapbox… I remember this Bugs Bunny cartoon where these two guys get stranded on an island. After a while they start to imagine each other as food, one a hamburger, the other a hot dog. So, I think of that and laugh anytime I see an online marketing company like HubSpot or Contant …
