We’re excited to announce that we’ve been named one of five finalists for the Best Mobile Advertising or Marketing Campaign at the upcoming Global Mobile Awards for our work with Shotzoom on Twitter. Watch the video below to learn more about the campaign.

As you’ve undoubtedly noticed, we’ve changed things up a bit.  Today, we launched our new website, logo, expanded messaging, and, most notably—a brand new line of mobile marketing solutions designed for brands, agencies, and performance marketers looking to reach precise mobile audiences.

Our two new products are for brand performance marketing:

Growth has always been a part of the Fiksu story -- but it's not every day that we get directly rewarded for it.

Today marks an important milestone in Fiksu’s history. This morning we announced that we secured  $10 million in debt funding from Silicon Valley Bank, which means more support to fuel our global expansion and ongoing product development. With this new financing we have the room to build out even more innovation in the world of programmatic ad tech for mobile and serve a broader audience of clients around the world.

There are many reasons why Fiksu has been voted the #1 company to work for in the Boston area. My personal favorite is the Fiksu2Fiksu century ride. It’s a 100 mile bike ride that starts in our Northampton office in the Western part of Massachusetts, and crosses through some beautiful (and sometimes hilly) countryside, ending at our Boston office. Fiksu offices in other parts of the world also take part and plot their own course routes.

When Smarter in the City announced its new incubator earlier this year, Fiksu’s Christian Galvin knew he needed to get involved. Based in Roxbury’s Dudley Square, the incubator caters to local entrepreneurs from underrepresented communities.

“This to me was unique,” said Galvin. “There are literally thousands of incubators right now, but I’ve yet to see any other incubator that focuses on the inner-city like this one does.”

Choosing the most memorable line from among Aarron Sorkin’s dozens of eminently quotable retorts, quips, and rambling monologues is no easy task.  The most likely consensus would be for  “You can’t handle the truth” from A Few Good Men, but, for my money, it’s Sean Parker admonishing Mark Zuckerberg’s lack of ambition in 2010’s The Social Network. 

You know the line—What’s cooler than a million? A billion.

Following Mr. Parker’s logic then, wouldn’t three billion be even better?

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.
