The writing’s on the wall: ZappRx is a cool place to be.
Soon at the trendy Boston “hot spot,” the Lawn on D, BostonFest will draw the most innovative and influential tech companies together in competition to determine who will be crowned BostInno’s number one coolest company—and ZappRx is in the running! We made it through the first round of judging, surviving as one of 150 different technology company finalists from a list of more than 500 submissions. And the way the cards have been falling, it looks like many people think ZappRx is one of the coolest companies around—and we’re inclined to agree.
After all, what isn’t cool about modernizing how specialty drugs are processed for patients? Creating a digital platform that saves clinicians time and gives patients a new way to track their own prescriptions is exciting!
Of course, we could talk all day about why we think our product is cool; but that’s not the only reason we’re on the short list for coolest company. Here at ZappRx, our company culture is what really sets us apart. Smack dab in Boston’s historic Leather District, ZappRx is amid the city’s growing community of entrepreneurs and tech startups. The company culture is high energy, passionate about transforming an outdated, paper-based system - and of course, about having fun along the way. Our office space is less “cubicle” and more “canvas”; it’s a space where bean bag chairs replace desks, and Friday afternoons and product launches are celebrated with local brews on tap.
ZappRx is also one of the best companies in town for working women. In 2012, Zoë Barry founded the company after her younger brother was diagnosed with epilepsy and had to wait months before receiving his therapy. Zoë brought a new face—and a new voice—to Boston’s healthcare technology scene; she’s vocal about encouraging more women to break the glass ceiling in the tech industry. As a result, more than half of ZappRx’s leadership team is made up of women. And, the company boasts benefits that encourage work-life balance for employees who manage careers and families.
So come to the Lawn on D on August 9, see who will ultimately rise high among the rest and be named Coolest. And while you’re waiting, take some time and cast your vote for the BostInno Reader’s Choice awards. You get to choose who walks away with the title of Best Perks, Best Office Space, Most Athletic, and more. Maybe ZappRx will win, and maybe we won’t. But either way, we’ll still love coming to work every morning.
