Full-service communications firm Grasslands: A Journalism-Minded Agency was awarded the Denver Business Journal 2020 Small Business Award—with the 14-person staff bringing home the first-place trophy in the Extra Small Business category to its new agency headquarters in the Baker neighborhood.
Judging for the awards was 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, judges also took into consideration the manner in which businesses dealt with the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.
Helmed by Founder & CEO Ricardo Baca, Grasslands has proven itself to be a leader in the public relations, cannabis, hemp, real estate 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, public relations and marketing professionals from across the country to deliver meaningful results for clients.
“My colleagues and I at Grasslands are legit humbled by this tremendous honor, especially since this Small Business Award comes from a journalism institution that has exclusively covered business in Colorado since 1949,” said Mr. Baca. “My colleagues and I are in the business of communications, and we share this prestigious award with our clients—who have trusted Grasslands with their most important assets: their reputations and their brands.”
Grasslands is moving into its new agency headquarters in Denver’s historic Baker neighborhood in mid-September 2020, where it will join other Colorado creatives along the Art District on Santa Fe at 100 Santa Fe Drive.
