Ventura Projects has really given a boost to my career. I have participated in Ventura Dubai, Ventura New York and in 2018 during Ventura Future in Milan I’ve been spotted by Nike. Now I’m working on an exclusive event for Nike headquarters. Ventura Projects definitely means meeting the right people!”
