Looking Back on 2017: Our Favorite Branch Moments

A new year brings an opportunity for reflection. It's a good time to acknowledge the projects we've tackled, the product we've built, the team we've assembled, and the accomplishments that resulted from our efforts.

We're really proud of all that we’ve been able to do this past year. Here is a look back at some of our favorite moments of the past year!

We’ve shared the spotlight with some incredibly talented teams from our home base in Minneapolis, Minnesota (Inspectorio, ilos, Inkit, Spot Crowd, and StoryXPress, to name a few). Along the way, we've been fortunate to be recognized in the burgeoning retail-tech scene that is shaping Minneapolis. You can check out some of these articles in OZY News, VentureBeat, and the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Last year, we also wrote about how important Minneapolis is to the company we're striving to build and why we relocated here from sunny Southern California. Just being close to the venerable institutions (3M, Target, Best Buy, United Health Group) that have helped define our region is one thing. To actively be part of the narrative that startups can assemble productive, smart teams away from the coasts, tap often overlooked verticals, and be close to their ideal customers is another.

We believe we're tackling both of those.

It's been a really wild and fantastic ride this past year. We are truly excited to continue building Branch Messenger in Minneapolis and look forward to an exciting 2018!

Check back tomorrow when we share our favorite Branch Blog Posts from the past year.
