A new partnership for Piaget and Genilem
Piaget promotes the Responsible Jewellery Council at the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair October 2013
In the framework of this new partnership, Piaget will finance every year part of the coaching activities of Genilem, an independent organisation that assists the creation of innovative companies in all fields.
What is the reason for this new partnership with Genilem?
Piaget: Piaget has been providing support for years to young talent at design, jewellery and watchmaking schools. Philippe Léopold-Metzger, CEO of Piaget, thought that it was logical for us to take an interest in young entrepreneurs, and Genilem is the best interface for doing so.
What led you to choose Genilem?
Piaget: Genilem operates today throughout French-speaking Switzerland and is now developing in the German-speaking cantons. It is a very efficient point of contact between young entrepreneurs and all the various local, cantonal and federal organisations. It is an association that is supported by sponsors representing the most dynamic firms in French-speaking Switzerland.
