The Hungarian Fashion & Design Agency collaborated with the Italian Istituto Europeo di Design to organize the design SPEED mentor program for the second time, which aims to proactively help locally already established design brands move onto the international market. This time, five Hungarian brands participated in the program: Error N ’More, Planbureau, marta edocs, Oleant Lighting and Socowoo.
Due to the pandemic, the program had to move into the online space, but given the situation, sole proprietors could also take part in it. Renowned Hungarian, Italian and American experts and professors passed on one hundred and thirty hours of professional material: participants were able to develop their sales and economics skills in addition to strategy creation and management topics. By the end of the program, they had all successfully completed their project assignments.
During the training sessions, participating brands have shown that they are ready for international expansion. Error N ‘More showcased its products at the International Ceramics Symposium, marta edocs won the annual award of the Art Jewelry Night in Budapest, the team of Socowoo was at the Construma OTTHONDesign professional exhibition, Planbureau products are already in demand overseas and Oleant Lighting won the Innovative product award of the i-NOVO Selection.
Application is already open for the new design SPEED mentoring program: find details here.
