It's hard to believe that it's already the end of August; this summer has (sadly) flown by. Over the last several weeks, we've been wrapping things up with our two summer interns, Julia and Kelly. Julia, our PR intern, worked hard all summer long building media lists, contributing to the BIGfish Twitter account, tracking clients' press mentions and much more. Kelly, our crafty copywriter, wrote dozens of articles for client Iceland Naturally, blog posts for BIGfish and pitches. We're definitely going to miss having them around, but wish them the best of luck as they head back to school this fall.
In case you haven’t heard, BIGfsh is a finalist in BostInno’s 2015 Coolest Companies competition! We always thought we were pretty cool, but it’s nice to hear it from somebody else, too.

Boston is brimming with technology startups, with established “unicorns” like DraftKings and innovative new players cropping up every week. With so many tech companies and startups in the area, there are plenty of tech-focused events that enable techies, investors and enthusiasts to mingle, network and learn from one another - and the August calendar is really heating up.
If you’re visiting Boston, if you’re a college student, or if you’re a working professional in the area like the BIGfish team, you know you need your coffee. We’re called Beantown for the baked beans, but coffee beans are just as important to us Bostonians. While there’s nothing wrong with that pink and orange DD, or everyone’s favorite green mermaid, there’s an entire world of coffee shops out there to explore, and no reason to keep going to the same chains. Here in Boston, there are countless cute, quirky and delicious coffee shops and cafes for great drinks and food. Once you visit these spots, you’ll want to make them yours and yours only forever.

We work with a lot of startups at BIGfish, so we understand the benefits of coworking spaces. Startups often can’t afford their own office space, but still need somewhere to work, and can benefit from with the support of a community and morale that typically comes from working closely with others. Starting your own business is far from easy, and we believe that coworking spaces can pave the way towards a company’s big break. They allow members to easily meet, collaborate and network - essential tools for any business. These awesome, local startup communities just might be the solution to take your company to the next level and increase your chances of success.
