"Thank's to Sipila Consulting we got lots of new ideas to establish the new brand and marketing for our student company GraniWorks. Before Sipila Consulting's involvement we didn't really have a clear idea for the brand and marketing. We got to understand our student company strengths and how to use those in marketing. The best part of the whole project was that Maria was able to listen to our opinions and ideas. The student company Grani Works was developed using student-driven approach and Maria helped to make this happen. I learned a lot about entrepreneurship and all that needs to be taken into account to differentiate from the crowd. These things you don't learn in normal school classes so I am really grateful that I got to be involved in this!" -Student Board Member GraniWorks, Pauliina Salmi
