"We are a very design-driven company," says Joe Joachim, founder & CEO of Hello Innovation
. "We are also heavy on the engineering side."
Hello Innovation is made up of a number of other companies, including Funeral One
, which works in the aerial drone industruy. It has offices in India and Brazil. The firm is also looking to hire 100 people, ranging from software developers to producers
. Hello Innovation
moved from St. Clair (near Port Huron) last year to be part of downtown Detroit’s emerging tech scene.
"Being part of that story is something we want to be around," Joachim says.
