GoLocal 24 is one of seven companies that are being presented as Future Stars at BIA/Kelsey’s LEADING IN LOCAL: The National Impact conference in Boston, MA, March 18-20, 2013. BIA/Kelsey selected the Future Stars - early stage start-ups that are developing the next big thing in interactive local media.
“Being recognized by BIA/Kelsey as a Future Star is a tremendous honor to the GoLocal team. The experience from the past two years demonstrates our model of providing high quality local content is realizing tremendous validation from consumers, advertisers and leading industry experts like BIA/Kelsey,” said Josh Fenton, Co-Founder and CEO of GoLocal24.
