Making Business Happen is a team of design thinkers creating sustainable solutions to help you grow in an increasingly liquid, globalized and competitive world.

We like to look to the future with reasonable optimism and in doing so we cultivate an international vision that is based on constant updating, creative approaches and the search for new opportunities.

The uniqueness of our methodology derives from tailor-made solutions that we always make compatible with any context, from micro-enterprises to multinationals.

What really matters to us, however, are people and the centrality of the human factor, who remain the privileged recipients of all our actions.


Who we are

About Us

Making Business Happen is a network of professionals that for 13 years has been helping people, companies and regions grow through marketing and culture.

It is not sufficient to start from common values, ideas, and objectives, it is necessary to measure oneself on your skills and ability to read the dynamics of the global market, including the meaning of the word risk.

Behind every success there is a lot of work, perseverance, dedication and sacrifice along with disappointments and failures. 

Starting thirteen years ago, we experimented first on ourselves, knowing that this represented the normal physiology of doing business, something that is neither a pathology nor an exception.

We are convinced that growth is impossible without getting involved and without taking your own risks; and that opportunities arise only if you are able to get out of your comfort zone.

The best antidote to the fear of risk is to rely on data analysis and solid strategic planning to reduce and manage any negative impact. The rest is done with passion, creativity, curiosity, enthusiasm, and a lot of work.

Technology helps us change our habits, our way of thinking and working, especially following a global pandemic that has imposed a “new normal” on us.

Not business to business
