The Florentine Guilds

Workshops designed according to the model of Renaissance "Botteghe" (Florentine Guilds).

The apprentices are trained and supported in the Workshop (Bottega) to develop skills through methodologies and operational models, testing their learning progress with the management of real projects of companies that pay for this service.

Here Apprentices (Garzoni), Artists and Patrons work together.

Guilds42 Ecosystem

 

DIGITAL

The acquisition of digital skills is fundamental to reinforce the economic system of Italian companies. Training, sharing experiences and enhancing competencies need new models. Renaissance-style workshops are thus recreated (The Workshops and the Florentine Guilds).

COMPANIES

Companies need to progress in order to catch the new Digital opportunities; businesses are experiencing a cultural change and are looking for people able to support them in this journey. Guilds42 facilitates this evolutionary process by making "projects" speak.

EDUCATION

In every civil society it is the key that contributes to adapting to the needs of the new generations. The digital revolution is drastically changing every aspect of life in recent years.  We need an innovative educational approach to be prepared for what is coming next.

YOUNGER
GENERATIONS

Younger generations are the basis to build new professions on, new ways of thinking, planning and innovating, providing a clear, meritocratic, stimulating but also practical and experiential approach. Digital Transformation is not possible without their full involvement.

We aim to:

Apprentices

These are young people from 14 to 30 years old, looking for professional opportunities by developing digital skills. They are creative, writers, learners, geeks and "social addicts". Our model focuses on young local people, training them in their journey to become Makers, and therefore potentially future Startuppers. We create the local incubator rather than attracting people already structured from the outside. The secret to making the model sustainable is to target an industrial sector of strategic interest for the Guild's territory.

Patrons

Those managers operating in the territories that know their respective industries and therefore become fundamental to implement an innovative digital approach. A change of mentality facilitated by Digital Enablers must take place because they know the specific market, the products, the competition, the customers, the regulations, and they have a clear understanding of the typical dynamics that, even in digital, they will have to face. In Guilds42 they lead the game, decide and commission projects that are developed in the Workshop. Patrons lead the innovation, today as in the Renaissance. 

> CONTATC US

Artists

Digital Disruptors, "interpreters" and "mediators" capable of making Enablers and Makers communicate. They are Project Managers, Functional Analysts, trainers and consultants who have business but also Digital skills. They are those able to put around a table business needs along with the opportunities of a new world, technological but not only. Those who open their Renaissance Workshop and "teach" to makers how to work for a real business project. And for us "real" means that someone has asked for it and pays for it (patrons or enablers).

Chief Digital Officer

After at least a dozen projects as Digital Tailor, a specific training for Chief Digital Officer (CDO) begins. 

You start to increase the number of clients and projects. You are recognized as a valid professional and gradually develop your team and establish collaborations. You are now able to meet clients independently and close your contracts. You can also continue to be part of "Team on Rental", meaning that those teams are "rented" by companies to pursue innovative projects.

LOCAL GUILD OPENING

Become a reference person for the opening of a Vertical Local Guild (district) and then create your own incubator of new "innovators" that are trained on the territory and develop innovation for the companies you already provide your services to. You will become an Artist to all intents and purposes, and develop new skills (Incremental Guild and EXponential Guild).

EXPONENTIAL INNOVATION, START-UP, DIGITAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Manage the local "Workshop", develop with their team innovative projects not only in their own field, but in others too. 

You can handle several teams that are "rented" by companies to carry out specific projects, and you also get profits from the certified Rental Team. You are entitled to make agreements with local associations by coordinating only the projects that deserve your attention, focusing on customer/project management activities while opening other business lines more related to the world of "Startup" and "Business Angel".
