We made a place where we’d want to work. Katherine and Jim Kern are serial entrepreneurs in the media and marketing business, addicted to trying new, creative ways of going to business. We didn’t stop after championing the ’90’s kid favorite Bubble Tape ads at Leo Burnett or being the first PEPSICO experiential marketing agency, with the launch of PEPSI ONE. In 2010, we were the first to produce integrated social and tv broadcast of a live professional championship game (the Serie del Caribe or Caribbean World Series) and build a community of fans – eBeisbol.com – while helping Major League Baseball launch the World Baseball Classic in the US.
COMRADITY is home for companies with creativity and community in their culture. Resident companies brand names are on their offices and on the lobby directory. Corporate intrapreneurs enjoy an escape from corporate hubbub in a private meeting room and sharing a cup of coffee with resident members in the member lounge and cafe.
Community members are impressive. From Mike Critelli, former CEO Pitney Bowes, to Marie Clark, a data analyst and founder of an ed tech company designed to train non-data analysts to leverage data and data visualization to grow their businesses, to John von Stade and Merrill Squires, co-founders of AGP. Connecticut Innovations has a Stamford home at COMRADITY and we are helping one CI portfolio company, VVault, the private electronic record sharing app, go to market and just welcomed a new CI portfolio company, Dream Payments, winner of Connecticut Innovation’s Venture Clash.
