TRANSFERABILITY AND SUCCESS FACTORS
FABERMEETING is an effective way to connect digital creative professionals and videogame makers with other types of businesses where the prize of the competition is the opportunity to meet the world of business during the FABERMEETING. The creation of a connection between this type of creative companies and big business it is very important because often creative professionals need to deepen their knowledge on entrepreneurship. Traditional companies, in turn, are not always aware of the value that these companies can provide their products. It’s important to underline that the competition has a national dimension not only regional.
QUOTATION
“The idea behind FABERMEETING is to help talented young people, aged 18 to 35, who until now by choice or lack of opportunity have been operating on the margins of the market, to go into it in a more stable position or acquiring information and valuable contacts. There are many young people who, from a personal passion for video, web, graphic design, have developed the skills and ability ata a high level. Transforming knowledge and skills in a business meeting is not a step taken for granted. You have so to say “get in the loop”, sometimes change a little bit the way you work, sometimes begin to breathe a little air from the market in order to understand which of your skills can find a space. "Carlo Boccazzi Varotto, creator of FABERMEETING
