If someone asks you to name a U.S. city associated with tech startups, chances are you’ll start your list with San Francisco or New York, but probably not Boston.

How do you best maximize a small space? It’s a conundrum that drives many consumers to IKEA — and one that the brand struggles with itself when it comes to billboard ads
