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.

He has fully understand our needs and delivered on time a very useful report

ASEF’s arts and culture website – culture360.ASEF.org (C360) - has been enabling public access to relevant digital information on arts and culture for individual artists, arts organisations and policymakers across the 51 countries of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) region. ASEF needed to diversify the cultural portal funding sources.

We've carried out a feasibility study on public and private funding for ASEF's, Culture 360 digital platform
The study has examined the landscape of Asia and Europe, USA and UAE and identified more than 139 feasible sources for public and private funding with particular focus on multinational corporations (MNCs) from different sectors (financial and insurance, energy, airlines, automobile, food and beverages, health care and beauty, fashion, among others) providing the rationale for win-win partnerships with culture and creative sector, in the frame of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
A new funding model has been designed for ASEF Culture 360 providing a sponsorship structure and planning tool defining type of sponsorship / partnership, rationale, number of potential sponors and min./max. proposed funds per sponsor (apart from outlining other non-financial benefits from sponsorship).
