Fruition Interactive partners with University of Waterloo Stratford

Today I’m thrilled and honoured to announce a new partnership between Fruition Interactive and the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus.

Growing out of our successful work with University of Waterloo Stratford Campus on the CommerceLab project last year, the partnership gives Fruition early access to  bleeding edge digital media research, the opportunity to be inspired by brilliant young student minds, and the opportunity to sit among the founders and senior managers of some of this country’s most innovative and accomplished companies on the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus Advisory Board.

But now Fruition can help you start to optimize your site pages, with evidence-based research, before your site has even launched. And at a price – this is the game-changing part – that small and mid-sized businesses can afford.

It’s my great pleasure to announce that Fruition Interactive’s Mitch Fanning will be presenting at this year’s Mesh Conference.
