We will organize the SME event on February 23rdth, 2017. This event will start in the afternoon with the first guest speaker. After this we will start with workshops where students can work on a case for a small or medium-sized company.

After the workshops there will be another interesting guest speaker. Furthermore, there will be a social where the students and entrepreneurs can network and socialize together. We will end the day with a dinner all together.

There will be limited places, so make sure you enroll in time. There is an opportunity to include your CV which can be interesting for the entrepreneurs. Students who include their CV have priority with assigning the places and in choosing the case.

Fundament All Media

Succesful marketing campaigns are no longer a consequence of influencing the large group, the mass. Especially the individual, or all kinds of individuals united by shared interests, determines whether your message comes through, whether your product is going to be successful and whether they want to connect to your organization. They do so by orienting themselves well. This is where you should focus on at an early stage. Whether it is about the purchase of a pair of shoes, a house, a holiday trip or energy savings. Build a relationship with your client by handing over the right information at the exact right time.

But how to do so? Where to start? Fundament All Media can help.

With pleasure and success.
