Engagement Migros, Match-Making Module

«It worked - but the scene is still young»

To the review

For the period 2016-2018, Engagement Migros, the Migros Development Fund, has set up a pioneering programme for Swiss digital creators, the «Match-Making Module», which has been integrated into various platforms such as Geneva International Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival and Ludicious – Zurich Game Festival. At the end of the module, Engagement Migros decided to present the accumulated know-how in a «Matchmaking Cookbook». Together with various interactive media, the Cookbook provides event organisers with ready-made recipes for ensuring the smooth running of meetings between project leaders, investors, producers or publishers. The Cookbook is now available from Pro Helvetia, which is continuing its matchmaking activities in the field of interactive media and extending its efforts to design.

About Engagement Migros

The Migros Development Fund («Engagement Migros») supports the development of pioneering projects that open up new paths by experimenting with innovative solutions in a changing society. Engagement Migros exists thanks to the annual contribution of some ten million francs from the Migros Group; since 2012, the fund has complemented the activities of another Migros initiative, the so-called Culture Percentage.
