The company indeed provides free training sessions dedicated to young people aimed at teaching sales techniques and self-marketing.

Among the various activities promoted, several awards have been obtained from the research "Is She the Owner?" - women and men in artisanal businesses, an analysis on a sample of companies aimed at highlighting the differences that occur depending on whether the owner is a woman or a man and "Women & Friends", an exhibition of prototypes created by artisan companies designed by established designers and presented annually in preview in Milan during the Salone del Mobile.

This initiative was selected and hosted at Expo 2015. It promoted various practical activities and coaching to support SMEs in adopting new technologies. In 2018, she was awarded the Technovisionaries® Prize by the Women&Tech® association. In December 2019, she was reconfirmed for a second term as president of the Milan section of Confartigianato.
