This week, we're continuing our updates from some of our teams at our Product Pitch competition in March. We love watching how these companies are evolving and tracking their success!
EXTRA INNINGS: Blu2Green
The Blu2Green team was thrilled to see their first big piece of press last month! They were featured in the Boston Business Journal's Startup Watch: 5 to Follow. They are a brand new company that hasn't even launched yet, so every milestone is a big one. We recently caught up with the team to see what's new and how they feel about this first piece of press. Check out our Q & A with Gavin Bodkin from Blu2Green below.
The Grommet: Is this your first "big" piece of press for your company?
Blu2Green: Yes! We had some great exposure from the Product Pitch event, but this is the largest piece of press we've received to date since then. We couldn't be more thrilled. We've already emailed all of our fans to relay the news!
The Grommet: What does it mean to you and your co-founder? Do you see it as a milestone?
Blu2Green: My co-founder, Chris and I consider this a great achievement for the company and hope to continue with the momentum it has given us. For startups, every piece of the puzzle that's put in place seems to be worthy of celebration - this is no exception. We are honored to have been chosen as the Top 5 Startups of the Week, and hope to continue representing Boston as best we can.
Blu2Green: We would like to be featured in Boston.com and the Boston Herald when we open our store! Our necktie will be our first product for sale! We'd also love an in-depth exposé on our operations, preliminary products, business ideas and future goals. They're important pieces of our own puzzle and we'd like to share them with the world.
