BPR Denver — Celebrating Two Years

July 20, 2015

It’s hard to believe that only two years ago, BPR Denver was a team of one — our VP, Johanna Erickson — sitting solo in Boulder at a big desk with even bigger dreams. She and the rest of the Seattle team knew there was potential for Barokas in Colorado with the region’s booming tech scene and the company’s extensive tech PR experience. But how much potential?

Fast forward two years and 10 employees later, and here we are — hard at work in our funky, industrial office in LoDo with dozens of new clients including Techstars, LeadPages, Choremonster, Simple Energy, CarLister, SQFT and Kindara. In typical BPR fashion — without the BS — we’re continuing to help grow our clients’ businesses by telling the right stories to the right reporters.

One of the key reasons BPR Denver has flourished is our unique work environment. It’s no secret that PR is a 24/7 job, so in the process of working our butts off for our clients, we — including part-time staffer Stella (the golden retriever) and Nick (the box turtle) — have truly become a family. We support one another in and outside of the office, challenge and bounce ideas off each other, and make each other laugh every single day.

We’ve ended many work days with a team happy hour or dinner and have planned countless other activities outside the office. Just last weekend, we got together for brunch at local hotspot, Root Down. Some of us saw Wicked together and took trips to Coachella. To close out our bi-annual staff meeting, we pedaled around Denver on a bike bar, sipping drinks and listening to old school hip hop. In September, we worked together to plan and host a Denver Startup Week panel. It’s this type of collaborative, fun and creative work environment that has enabled us to kick ass for our clients.

I’m excited to see what BPR Denver will look like another year from now. It’s impossible to know what new companies we’ll help launch and exactly how much our team will grow, but I do know as we continue to expand, we will continue to stay truly BPR — that is a hard-working, no-BS, smart, passionate group of PR professionals. And I feel very lucky to be along for the ride.
