GETTING IT DONE WITHOUT COMPROMISE
With EMI Research Solutions, you get an agile, focused team of research professionals with over 17 years of experience in building research samples. They literally enable your project to deliver the data you need, even if the respondents you require are difficult to find or are in another part of the world. EMI will work with you as an extension of your team to provide hands-on project management with one point of contact, with an unparalleled level of responsiveness, creativity and flexibility to navigate any issues.
“Our strength is more than simply providing a service, but also using our people, our skills and our tenacity to reach the optimal outcome every time. The outcome is more than the number of people who complete a survey. It is the relief of knowing your respondents are correctly matched to your study. It is the security your study will happen as expected on budget and on time. It is the peace of mind that someone is uncommonly dedicated to you and your best interests. The outcome is what we must be known for and differentiates us from every other research sampling company out there", said Joey Adams of EMI Research
EMI is a local small business start up with a mission to support other local companies whether in the start up process or in existing business.

Great ideas are born every day and they want to do everything possible to influence the development, positioning, advertising, and ultimately the long term success of those products and brands they serve.
Having once been a startup and having gone through challenges they’re going through now, EMI Research Solutions feels that they can add some unique perspective. They understand what it's like to be a "small" guy going up against some larger companies for a piece of the market and business.
Joey noted, "Beside loving…Innovation, Marketing, Insights, Research, and the Queen City…we are excited to be a part of ProductCamp this year to learn from speakers and others at the event. Consistently learning is important to all business and something we need to stay open to especially as a small business. It is what can set us apart from our larger counterparts. We look forward to applying the ideas and principals shared here to provide a positive impact in our community going forward".
EMI lives and breathes insights. We help capture the right data to inform brands of the best direction for their business. Avoiding landmines and helping to uncover goldmines.
ENABLING CORPORATES TO INNOVATE AND GROW LIKE STARTUPS
Corporate teams are under pressure like never before as competition comes not only from the “big guys,” but also from startups and small, nimble companies and trends that seem to move faster than the speed of light.
"One of the best things about the startup ecosystem in Cincinnati is that we all make a point to support each other in our endeavors. Supporting ProductCamp is healthy for the community and benefits our friends, our partners and ourselves. We all want to see Cincinnati continue to do amazing things, and we can help each other achieve that together through unique events like this that strengthen our ecosystem", noted Jason Hauer, Co-Founder.
At The Garage Group, they hang out with startups, but also work with established brands and big companies on strategy, ideation and insights. More than anything, The Garage Group loves to bring corporate teams back to the heart of that entrepreneurial hunger, drive and agility that builds great initiatives, brands and companies.
In a further conversation with Jason, he said, "ProductCamp embodies the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit that we strive to live by at The Garage Group, so helping to cofound and staying involved with PCamp feels like a natural extension for our company. It's inspiring to see our ecosystem come together to learn from one another and to push each other to get better".
The Garage Group brings startup-inspired approaches that enable corporate teams and brands to imagine and iteratively develop breakthrough strategy and truly new ideas. They ask their clients to check “we can’t do that’s” at the door. The Garage Group brings the leadership, hustle and courage needed to allow teams to think bolder.
