Event Details

Founded by 21-year-old Joe Joachim in 2001, Hello Innovation was completely bootstrapped with no VC funding. 12 years and 100+ employees later, our products touch over 20 million people every month - and the company is still growing like crazy. At HI, it’s all about kicking conventional wisdom to the curb, questioning everything, and making a real impact. Ranging from social platforms to ecommerce and event planning, our portfolio of companies are fueled by the same goal: to solve real challenges in the key moments that define life.

At the event we will have our classic Grow Detroit fireside chat with the founder of Hello Innovation. We'll discuss the origins of the company, how they are seeing huge growth currently, challenges of hiring so many people so quickly, why they chose Detroit and more.  Refreshments will be available as well.

Why Attend?

  • Check out a candid, no BS fireside chat. Joe Joachim will share how he broke all the rules to create a growing enterprise with an amazing culture – doing what he loves. 
  • Chow down on Slows BBQ, beer & cocktails.
  • No party is ever complete with out a DJ (and a… violin?!)
  • Ping pong, foosball and air hockey anyone? 
  • Awesome prize give-a-ways and free swag are always great excuses.

What is GrowDetroit?

Inspired to turn Detroit into a vibrant startup community like Boston, Boulder, and NYC, Grow Detroit is a community of ambitious young entrepreneurs and professionals in Southeast Michigan (Greater Detroit + Ann Arbor regions). Grow hosts events and promotes news with the goal of helping start-ups grow and thrive in Southeast Michigan. Started by a group of local Entrepreneurs, the group also publishes “Grown in the D,” the leading directory of Detroit Start-Ups, Michigan Incubators, Groups & Meetups, and Michigan Venture Firms.

With press mentions in The Daily Beast, Dbusiness, Forbes, The Huffington Post, StartupDigest, TechCrunch, Techonomy, TheNextWeb, and XConomy, Grow Detroit has become one of the leading resources for young entrepreneurs to connect in Michigan.
