MAPR.agency, formerly Metzger Albee, is partnering with the Boulder Chamber to provide pro bono public relations services to the winner of the Esprit Venture Challenge, an annual award presented to an outstanding Boulder startup.
MAPR has pledged a year-long public relations and communications program to each year’s Esprit Venture Challenge winner starting with this year’s recipient, Qualify. Founded by University of Colorado students Sean Chenoweth, Keenan Olsen and Jack Elder, as well as Christian Tucker, the company has developed a mobile dating application. The app is exclusively for college students — all users must use a university email address in order to download the app.
“Qualify exemplifies the Esprit Venture Challenge’s spirit of entrepreneurship,” said Doyle Albee, president and CEO of MAPR.agency. “The Qualify team is made up of creative and energetic individuals willing to collaborate and take risks to create a fun but substantial solution to meeting people in a new and different way.”
