Rinascimente is a registered and JUNECO a pending trademark owned by FEA and E.Amiotti. FEA has a followership of several thousand teachers, thanks to its competition grants and Rinascimente TV, continuing to scout and develop high quality educational projects.
REV will be initially the marketing (with social impact objectives) and international arm of FEA and AER non profit organizations (remunerated by royalties), to develop fully owned products. Risk profile is low, with a network of very seasoned professionals (with top league MBAs and PhDs), mid-30 experienced social consultants, mentoring a growing team of young enthusiasts. more
