Project-Nerd HQ Relocating to Denver
April 6, 2015 — Project-Nerd is heading to the Rocky Mountains. In a move to better establish a community-driven brand and to help increase product strategy, Project-Nerd, LLC is relocating its headquarters from Manhattan, Kansas to Denver, Colorado. The move will take place in June 2015, and will lead to a number of changes across the site and within the company.
Project-Nerd established 2015 as a year of change, and after a successful first quarter with some key additions and changes, the company is heading to a metro area populated with more than 3.2 million people to further grow the brand. “At the end of last year we promised a number of large announcements this year, and one of them included moving,” stated Project-Nerd, LLC Founder & CEO, Iggy Michniacki. “Coming off of our most successful quarter in company history we felt the timing was right to announce the change as we still worked out the last few details.”
Project-Nerd reaches its audience mainly through an online presence but the company understands that establishing roots in a strong geek community is important. “Moving to a larger area allows us to get more involved in local events and charities as well as drive new, product-focused initiatives forward such as Project-Nerd Publishing,” Michniacki added.
Project-Nerd was founded in the spring of 2012 as a geek blog and quickly became a brand with many goals and many accomplishments. However, even with all of Project-Nerd’s successes, being rooted in strong geek communities across the country had not been one of them. “We often have to travel to out-of-town markets to set up at conventions and events, but now we will have our feet firmly planted in Denver and a few other regions due to moves this summer,” added COO Adam Adair. “It’s important that we give back to the communities that love us, and this will help that.”
Along with community events and charity work, Project-Nerd, LLC has been developing its new publishing division. The leadership of the company widely believes that being in a large market can help Project-Nerd be more successful with this new initiative as well. “Being in a community filled with creative people eager to be a part of something local will help our publishing goals as much as it will help our brand as a whole,” stated Editor-in-Chief Erin Michniacki.
“It’s not just a business move, but it’s also a personal move,” added Iggy Michniacki. “We are geeks ourselves and we want quick access to entertainment, we want to attend more local conventions and events, and we want to network on all levels with our fellow comic readers, movie watchers, and con-goers.”
Details about the move will continue to release as they become official, but Project-Nerd plans to add many other Denver events and conventions to their already well-rounded ProNerd Tour.
