About Us

commonsku is a fast-growing SaaS company that changes the way companies within the promotional products space collaborate and work. We empower entrepreneurs to grow their businesses by creating a more collaborative and streamlined product-based supply chain.

We are on a mission to change the way small businesses operate, democratizing software to enable an open playing field. We don't just sell software; we believe in helping our customers build better businesses through content, events and a community for sharing. We care deeply about brand and design, investing heavily in both. We have built a brand that is deeply respected and trusted within the industry.

Our team is dedicated, hands on and available to jump in as needed. We are known for the exceptional customer service we provide. Each person knows their opinion is respected, and they can see the difference they make in the lives of our customers. We work as a team, have an open, collaborative environment where there is also a lot of joking around :)

If you have a desire to learn end-to-end planning of in person and virtual events and are excited to build new programs and processes, we’d love to hear from you.

The Environment

Our culture is diverse and friendly, with a laid-back enthusiasm and sense of humor that makes collaboration easy. We’re passionate about our customers and their success, and we love fostering an environment that ignites creativity and celebrates the entrepreneur.  We work remote seamlessly with a distributed team across Canada and the US, while maintaining a base at HQ in Toronto.

Our Approach to Events

commonsku has executed over 40 in person and virtual events since 2015. We design the kind of events that we ourselves would want to attend. We put a lot of care and attention into creating phenomenal experiences for our attendees. This includes our programming from the types of venues we choose to the kind of merchandise we design. We stay away from big hotel chains and are always looking for unique and creative environments. Here’s a recent example of an event we produced in Palm Springs in 2021.
