Pleased to meet you

Good day and thank you for visiting my site. My name is Dominik Schmid and I am the founder of F.A.M.O.S. Medien AG. I am an entrepreneur/general manager in the digital media/sports/entertainment space.


I am a qualified lawyer by training and I hold an M.B.A. from the renowned business school INSEAD. In the past I worked for major sports marketing firms dealing with sponsorship, licensing and media rights for some of the worlds most prestigious sports events including the FIFA World Cup, the UEFA EURO Championships and the Olympic Games. Following the 2006 FIFA World Cup, where I was responsible for the successful delivery of the electronic media coverage (the decision to produce in HDTV changed the TV landscape), I joined the Swiss IPTV start up Zattoo to develop the German market. I then co-founded the digital media agency Serranetga (today Equipe) before I set up my own company F.A.M.O.S. Medien AG. F.A.M.O.S. has since worked on a number of advisory projects with digital startup companies, advising them on strategy issues, business development as well as communication.


I have a very broad industry background, in particular in sports and music, with substantial experience in the electronic media (linear TV, digital media, IPTV, rights licensing, broadcast operations), marketing (sponsorship, licensing), industry specific legal (contract negotiation and drafting) and social media fields with a proven track record of delivering results under difficult circumstances in varying cultural environments.


I am always looking for interesting projects to assist in an advisory but hands-on capacity. I am a digital strategist, who grew up in the analogue world and knows how to build bridges between the 'old' world and today's reality. I understand both sides and can easily facilitate communication between them. I am interested in all aspects related to the area of digitisation and the paradigm shift it brings about, the new opportunities it creates and the broader impact on society.


Please get in touch.
