Fiksu is proud to be named a nominee for BostInno’s Coolest Companies Competition, an award we took home last year.

With our own bar, weekly company lunches, a fully-stocked kitchen, unlimited vacation, awesome team outings and all-around great people, we definitely think we’re one of Boston’s coolest companies.

Fiksu is proud to be a finalist for this year’s MassTLC Leadership Awards in the category of Private Company of the Year. The Awards, now in their 17th year, celebrate and showcase the region’s best leaders, companies, and technologies.

“No matter which of the 2014 MassTLC Technology Leadership Award finalists emerge as winners in their respective categories, collectively they underscore the depth and breadth of talent in our region and we are proud to be associated with you all,” said Tom Hopcroft, president and CEO of Mass Technology Leadership Council.

Fiksu is happy to welcome our newest executive team member, Ken Goldman. Ken joins us from Black Duck Software, where he was named CFO of the Year by the Boston Business Journal in 2009.

As CFO, Ken will lead Fiksu’s financial operations, focusing on the continuing creation, enhancement and realization of shareholder value in the company.

Consider us honored.

On June 13, The American Business Awards chose Fiksu as a “Gold Stevie Winner” in the mobile marketing campaign of the year category.   The award recognizes Fiksu’s work in promoting Plain Vanilla’s Quizup app this past November.

Impressed by the 5.5 million users Quizup gained and the app’s distinction as “the fastest growing iPhone game in history,” the American Business Awards selected Fiksu’s campaign out of the hundreds of submissions across dozens of categories.

In an industry that's swimming in awards for companies, technologies, and campaigns, it's sometimes hard to tell one from the next. But when it comes to individual recognition for entrepreneurs, Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year award is one of the most significant and well-respected awards programs out there. And that's why we are thrilled to announce that last night, Fiksu CEO and Founder Micah Adler was named an EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2014 in the New England Region.

 

A billion is a not a number that is thrown around all too often, so it’s a milestone worth noting. Fiksu recently surpassed the 1,000,000,000 mark in loyal app users we have helped our clients acquire over the past several years.

Seeing as how the average daily time spent on mobile in 2013 was 2 hours and 21 minutes (an almost 500% increase since 2010) it’s not surprising then that nearly half those 1 billion users were acquired in 2013 alone.

Today, Ernst & Young announced the finalists for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2014 award in the New England Region, and we’re proud to say that our very own Micah Adler has made the list for the third year running!

As the mobile app market continues to mature, brands have set their sights on sophisticated goals beyond basic user acquisition, aiming to reach their target users across multiple barriers: over time and across apps and device platforms. Marketers have already experienced the power of retargeting on the desktop – in fact, eMarketer says that 55 percent of marketers view retargeting as one of the most important forms of targeting.

Last week, Apple released its Best of 2013 rankings, showcasing the apps (and music, and movies) that saw the most success on iTunes and the App Store. We're proud of the success our clients have, and we knew they'd be well-represented on the Top Grossing apps list -- but the extent might surprise you. 

It’s the season of nonstop events here at Fiksu: from San Francisco to London to Korea and back, the Fiksu team is wrapping up its multi-country world tour, meeting with and hearing from some of the most influential folks in the industry. After many flights, presentations and demonstrations – and trying to keep track of it all – here is our recap of where we’ve been over the last couple of months.
