The 50 on Fire awards recognized the 50 hottest companies in Boston’s Arts & Entertainment, Design, Dining & Retail, Education, Healthcare & Medicine, Marketing & Advertising, Media, Sports & Fitness, and Tech sectors. BostInno received more than 2,000 50 on Fire nominations across the 9 categories, which was then narrowed down to 200 finalists; we were nominated for the Marketing and Advertising category along with 23 other nominees. On Tuesday night, Nanigans, Hubspot, Allen & Gerritsen, and Mullen were declared the Marketing & Advertising category’s winners. Other 50 on Fire finalists included: New Balance (Retail & Dining), Island Creek Oyster Bar (Retail & Dining), Harvard University (Education), The Museum of Fine Arts (Arts & Entertainment), and Vertex Pharmaceuticals (Healthcare).
According to BostInno, “being on fire is about being brave. It’s about pushing on the four walls of an industry, a city, a thought, until they expand to make room for an idea, a talent, a success that’s so much bigger than what was there before, and too incredible to be ignored.”
Winners were announced via video, which premiered to over 600 guests at the John Joseph Moakley Courthouse in the Innovation District and is embedded below; you can find the Marketing & Advertising category at the 6:50 mark.
We would like to thank BostInno, the judges, and those who nominated Nanigans for selecting us as a 50 on Fire winner!
