ABOUT

 

SERVICES

 

Accessing a territory can be challenging as it requires local knowledge and connections which creatives and companies often have no access to. Having teams located in London, Milan, Berlin and Gothenburg provides us a powerful insight in Germany, Italy and Sweden.

We love to explore all potential opportunities to maximise international reach.

Our strategy includes:

  • MEDIA & PRESS COVERAGE

  • RADIO PLUGGING

  • LIVE PERFORMANCES

  • INTERNATIONAL FEATURES

  • BRANDS ACCESS

  • CONTENT CREATION

OUR STORY

BeFWD's founder Francesca Bondioli moved to London from Milan in  2006 to live where discovering new international music was an

everyday feature. 

In Milan she worked for Radio Planet introducing the newest international artists; once in London she studies 'Music Business' and joined American magazine Empire Radio Magazine creating a UK segment to promote British artists.

She then worked as General Manager for independent label J.O.A.T. coordinating artists' campaigns and events.

Having worked in various fields of the music industry, Francesca realised that many British artists, music professionals and lifestyle brands were not able to easily access Europe so in January 2019 she created BeFWD to bridge the gap between European countries.
