MINNEAPOLIS – September 20, 2017 – FISION Corporation (OTCQB: FSSN), a leading provider of cloud-based digital asset management and sales enablement technology, has joined Allina Health, Target, Thrivent Financial and others in sponsoring the 4th Annual Twin Cities Startup Week. Their sponsorship will support dozens of special events, pitch competitions, seminars and workshops being hosted at more than 70 venues around the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area from October 9-15.
The event is a collaboration between local companies and organizations, including Beta.MN, MN Cup, Minnestar, TECHdotMN, and CoCo, that have come together to promote entrepreneurship and innovation in the Twin Cities region. The weeklong event is expected to draw more than 10,000 business influencers from across the country.
Sponsoring Startup Week allows FISION to extend its advocacy of the Minneapolis/St-Paul startup communities and its support for rising tech talent in the region. Last week, FISION announced that they started a “hiring blitz,” as well a number of recent industry awards, including the 2017 SalesTech Award, “Best Places to Work” from the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, and “Best Companies to Work For” from Minnesota Business Magazine.
“It has been amazing to work with supportive companies like FISION to help bring light to the amazing startup scene in the Twin Cities,” said Nels Pederson, co-founder of Twin Cities Startup. “We’re excited to work with them to help celebrate and showcase the best and brightest from our community, encouraging other local entrepreneurs to build the next, great public company from within our region.”
FISION creates agile marketing software that is transforming the way marketing and sales teams create and distribute digital content across countries, continents, and languages. Several large enterprise companies from a range of industries have adopted FISION’s unique SaaS solution over the last year, including a global financial services company, a top provider of online higher education, an operator of the world’s largest business network, and the world’s largest manufacturer and maintainer of people-moving products including elevators and escalators.
FISION has helped them overcome common challenges in the traditional sales and marketing process, allowing distributed sales and marketing teams to access pre-approved corporate campaigns that can be customized in real-time and executed on the local level.
“Many of our team members are from here,” noted FISION’s chief revenue officer, Jason Mitzo. “We’ve had a tremendous amount of support from the local community while growing FISION. As we scale, it’s our goal to give back to those just starting up, and to make sure that we’re able to source the best talent from our community.”
FISION was also recently awarded its first U.S. patent that protects the proprietary systems and methods-of-use surrounding its digital asset management technology. The patent validates the exceptional level of innovation and capability represented in the FISION platform, as well as the unique value proposition it offers enterprise customers and channel partners worldwide.
