We know that building a great company isn’t easy, but the best teams still have fun while achieving success. Three years ago we established the #CoolestCompanies Competition to honor great companies that are impacting industries, making Boston a continued epicenter for innovation, and building fun, talented teams while they’re at it.

The competition has grown every year, and this year we received hundreds of nominations from companies with beautiful office spaces, frequent happy hours, and some serious perks. What we learned is that Boston’s hottest brands are drinking a lot of beer, eating a lot of bagels and getting a lot of vacation time. But, they’re are also living out their company mission, taking pride in their work, and giving back to the community. In short, you didn’t make the decisions easy for us.

For the first time, we gave our readers the power to select two of the winners and we tallied over 21,000 votes to select two Readers Choice winners. The remaining 8 winners were carefully selected by panel based on their nomination.

Congratulations to all of our nominees and finalists!
