what clients say
Antonio Ruiz (director Economia Creativa) delivers unparalleled expertise in the dynamic yet complex area that is fundraising for the arts. We reached out to Antonio to help us map potential funders for our cultural exchange projects. He delivered 2 excellent feasibility studies on potential public & private funders. We remain extremely impressed by the wealth of strategic and practical information contained in these studies.
Anupama Sekhar, Director, Culture Department, Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF)
Our aim was to promote our profession and train our colleagues on the use of the different tools to communicate the benefits of Physiotherapy to the public and policy makers. The EC team blew us away with their approach, dedication and most of all, results. With them we started to build up the milestones of our current projects and campaigns.
We have found the EC team to be professional, talented and a pleasure to work with.
I would highly recommend them to any association thinking about PR.
David Gorria, General Secretary of the ER-WCPT, Brussels, Belgium
We have engaged with Economia Creativa for a feasibility study on possible funding solution for ASEF’s digital platform culture360.ASEF.org. We were very pleased with the result of the study. It was very detailed and gave us many new ideas on how to approach fundraising for this project. We highly recommend working with Antonio Carlos. He has fully understand our needs and delivered on time a very useful report
