Phuseletter April 2012 Phuseletter April 2012

Dear Phusers,

Greetings from the strange alien world of Spring, the planet where allergies are abundant and Starbucks sells more iced coffee than lattes!

This month at the Phuse:

James and The Phuse were accepted into the Toronto Entrepreneur’s Organization Accelerator program. If you want to know more, James wrote about what this means for the company on our blog.

Matt moved back across the Atlantic ocean and is currently residing in Texas.

We said goodbye to Mitch, who designed the January Phuseletter and the new company portfolio (not yet available). He is no longer working with us on a full-time basis, but will be returning on certain projects that call for his particular skillset (which is abundant and which we are very sorry to lose).

We started 7 new projects, and wrapped up 2 works in progress! The finished products can found at:

UrbanFlow Engine After8

Business Talk

We will now (regrettably) be charging Canadian clients 13% HST on all payments. This is to get the company into a better position and on track for accounting purposes in 2013.

US and international clients will not be affected.

Freshly Pressed

There were 4 original blog posts published in April on the blog:

Other Reminders

James is away for the first half of May at a youth camp in the Toronto area he helps out with every year. During this time he will be available to take meetings, calls, and emails, but will take longer than normal to respond.

Any emergency inquiries can be directed to Jessica, our office manager, at

What a busy month! Until next time, with tender love and care,

The Phuse Team

James, Erik, Matt, Jenna, Tom, Tamera, and Jessica
