Swedish talents attempt to conquer the world!

Ossian Veronese is one of the Sweden’s top talents in the digital design-field and the co-founder of Storisell in Gothenburg, Sweden. Ossian offers digital design services (creation of websites, videos, apps and motion graphics) to worldwide clients.

Yet, before taking his talents back to Sweden, Ossian first studied at The School of Art and Design at Middlesex University in London. Hence back in Sweden in June 2015, he worked as Digital Art Director for Alarmstreet Reklam in Kalmar where he acquired most of his experience. 

Actually, Ossian launched Storisell in March this year, one month before his registration for  Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs. In the summer 2016, the young entrepreneur was already in Slovakia collaborating with Matus Kirchmayer, founder of MATSUKO in Kosice. The business specialises in the development of games and software.

Ossian and Matus collaborated during two months on various projects ranging from websites creation and development, viral social media campaigns and apps launch. They notably worked on a new project called "Social Companion” and launched the Storisell website.

But, most importantly, they reviewed the Storisell business development plan and reinforced its internationalisation strategy. As a result, Storisell started to expand globally with the involvement of creative freelancers across the world.

At the same period, Ossian was crowned Digital Talent 2016 by Universum and Evry at Talent Excellence Summit & Awards hosted in Stockholm.

Ossian and Matus Kirchmayer continued collaborating together after the exchange and were recently invited to speak about their Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs experience at the Creative Trade Mission hosted by European Creative Business Network (ECBN) in Kosice, Slovakia.

The exchange was organized by NIO Ale Municipality (Sweden) and HIO Košice IT Valley (Slovakia).
