Who is PrismA?

Our team is comprised of University of Calgary students from all different areas. In 2015, the club’s founding team was constructed and started off as the marketing team for the Haskayne Students’ Association (HSA), and later moving on to work with the Haskayne Commerce Undergraduate Society (CUS). Through all the changing organizations, we have remained passionate about marketing and strive to deliver some of the best products and results that we can be proud of.

Being located in Calgary, we have also experienced firsthand how Calgarians were impacted by the current downturn and understand how costs can quickly undermine small businesses. This is why we have expanded our services to the local community to include small businesses and start-up companies.

PrismA has been providing free marketing services for three years, and we are completely unique by offering services like our Marketing Partnership Program (MPP). We hold ethical marketing at our core, and will contribute in protecting the integrity of organizations and individuals. We are in it for your organization, and the successes of your future initiatives are our main priority.

Our specializations:

Marketing Consulting
Social Media Marketing Support
Photography
