From July to November 2018 STAGE carried out three business model workshops in Italy, Hungary, and Cyprus. We invited external experts in the field of business modelling and cultural industries in order to validate our draft business approach and gain more knowledge of the STAGE national markets. Received feedback enabled us to improve our business model, particularly in terms of elaboration of the target market. We also received many useful suggestions and tips for commercialization and marketing activities. Thanks to the workshops results we are better prepared to bring the STAGE streaming platform to the market. Read more about STAGE workshops by clicking here.
