For my Master’s Project with Beast Technologies, I had the unique opportunity to develop, plan, and implement a Content Marketing Strategy from scratch that grew our Social Media presence almost 80% in 6 months across Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

But a few key takeaways to share for those looking at joining a start up or want to join a start up.
IM4 students have the chance to personally interact with the partners of the master, developing some projects with international companies. One of those stimulating experience was proposed by Nielsen.
