Together with the tech giant, we have developed a project to support the FIEG (Italian Federation of Newspaper Publishers) in the development of a new mindset through the evaluation of the opportunities that come from the massive adoption of digital technologies in the publishing industry. We have organised an Envisioning Academy in three different cities, as well as a hackathon in Turin, to transform ideas into concrete projects to be implemented within the sector.
Innovation is to experience change as an opportunity.
For us, opportunities start with people, from a desire to have an impact on the world around us. This is why we guide and support Corporates who are on a path of exploration and development in the world of digital transformation. We connect them with a European network of talents and partners in the technology industry.
Our projects, developed with over 300 large companies from various sectors, from telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, healthcare to banking, food and consumer goods, are all based on two key elements.
