On the 4th day of the CreativeLab training course, after the warm-up activity, there was a presentation about the FEAST Thessaloniki initiative and of the crowdfunding practice for funding projects/ideas/ventures by Argyro Barata who is the founder of the FEAST Thessaloniki.

Later on, we continued with Dimitra Zervaki and discussed examples of real cases of good and bad Value Propositions as well as of winning statements of “Why-How-What”. A Presentation about the power of a purpose-driven strategy over marketing spin was held and a Designation of the difference between a Value Proposition and a Positioning Statement using the example of “Evernote” was mentioned and discussed.
