Startups Paired

For The Brandathon 2017, click here.

Congratulations to this year's winning agencies!.

How it works.

Startups must submit a 60-second video explaining why you should be chosen to participate in the 2015 Brandathon. Videos should include a brief description of your product or service and a clearly articulated reason why you believe a tailored branding plan would elevate your business. Don’t forget: you're vying for the public’s vote to earn a spot in the top ten. Have fun with it - we want to see your personality!

What’s in it for me?

Everyone involved, startups and agencies alike, receive free promotion, publicity, visibility and increased awareness for their startup among the Boston startup/advertising communities acquired via the Brandathon’s sharing platform. In addition to the above, the parties involved have the chance to win fabulous prizes like the one listed below:
