by | May 7, 2020

Full-service communications firm Grasslands: A Journalism-Minded Agency has been named a finalist in Denver Business Journal’s 2020 Small Business Awards.

Judging for the awards is based on five distinct categories: Financial Performance, Historical Achievements, Contributions to the Industry and the Local Economy, Potential to Shape Metro-Denver’s Business Community and Community Impact. Additionally, due to the unprecedented nature of the global economic climate, judging will also be focused on how businesses are dealing with the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.

Helmed by Founder and CEO Ricardo Baca, Grasslands has proven itself to be a leader in the public relations, cannabis, hemp and media industries as well as an emerging member of Colorado’s creative community. In keeping with the agency’s journalism-mindedmentality, Mr. Baca has amassed a team of journalism and communications professionals from across the country to deliver the results that clients have grown to expect.

“While my colleagues and I wake up every morning with our clients as our priority, we’re also building a different kind of agency and a purpose-driven brand—and so this recognition is really meaningful,” said Mr. Baca. “An agency is only as strong as its individual team members, and so I will always hold up my colleagues as the secret to Grasslands’ success for this or any other acknowledgement.”

Since inception, Grasslands has positioned itself as a passionate contributor to Denver’s strategic communications community. Grasslands’ advocacy work has aligned the agency with numerous social causes and political campaigns within the city and state, and Grasslands aims to continue contributing positively to Denver’s ever-evolving business community.

Winners will be highlighted in the Small Business Awards special section published in Denver Business Journal’s May 15 edition.
