This article from the Worcester Business Journal highlights the acquisition of Skyscope, a video production business started by Clark alumni Gabe Gerzon ’11, M.S.P.C. ’12, Sam Shepler ’11, M.S.P.C.’12 and Alex Dunn ’11, M.B.A. ’12, by public relations firm Matter Communications of Newburyport. Here, an excerpt:

"Skyscope, a Worcester startup focused on video production, was acquired by a Newburyport public relations firm Tuesday and will remain operating in the city with all its employees. Skyscope, with offices in downtown Worcester and Cambridge, was founded in 2012 by three Clark University graduates who met in college. The three young entrepreneurs decided to build their business in Worcester because of the resources and affordability of the location. ... 'Ultimately, this partnership is a force multiplier that will let us both deliver on our brand promise in an even bolder and more exciting way,' Skyscope CEO Sam Shepler said in a release from Matter."
