As we say goodbye to 2021, we’re feeling extra grateful for this year. The last 18 months, we’ve settled into our work-from-home routines, grown our organization and celebrated our employees. Below are a few things we are especially grateful for.
- We’ve grown! We’ve hired eight employees across our disciplines and have expanded our footprint across the U.S. You can find some of our staff in Massachusetts, Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Michigan, Illinois and beyond!
- We love giving back and have done so the past two years by providing our services pro bono to Joyya and Spave to help them successfully launch their rebrands.
- We’ve celebrated our staff’s many achievements. One of our fabulous designers, Katherine Bosworth, won AdFed’s 32 Under 32 award, and our incredible creative leaders, Jessica Helvey and Emily Sauer, both celebrated 15 years at Fusion Hill.
- You might have seen us around Minneapolis! We sponsored NAWBO’s Hall of Fame event and Twin Cities Startup Week. Both events are helping our Minneapolis entrepreneurial community grow.
- In lieu of our traditional Valentine’s Day gift, we donated to three organizations: Northside Achievement Zone, National Urban League and Joyya.
We hope you have a restful year-end with family and friends. See you soon, 2022!

In September, Fusion Hill had the privilege not only of participating in Twin Cities Startup Week as a sponsor but also of featuring our VP of Research and Strategy, Amy Behrens, and our VP of Business Strategy, Nina Gazel, as speakers at the event. Because we ourselves are part of a small business, we are always looking for ways to give back to the community, which is why we jumped at the opportunity to share our expertise at this event, the second-largest startup week in the U.S.! Our team presented to a mixed virtual and in-person audience on the power of research, with a presentation titled “Stop Guessing, Start Asking: Using Research to Drive Growth.”
For many startups, conducting research feels out of reach and overwhelming, if they are familiar with it at all. For that reason, our presentation focused on a few actionable topics, including crafting objectives, conducting research on a budget, and finding insights among the data. The audience had so many great questions and engaging conversations that left us energized and grateful for the opportunity to share our knowledge. We can’t wait to see them go forth and use the power of research as they continue their startup journeys!
