As an innovation-driven consumer group, Fosun is committed to bringing a happy life to hundreds of millions of families, and gradually building a FC2M (Fosun Client to Maker) happiness ecosystem centered around family customers.

Starting from 2019, Fosun’s industrial ecosystem layout centered around the needs of family happiness has become more and more complete and gave rise to the Fosun Family Season, implementing the “client-end as top priority, maker-end as top leader” strategy. Fosun Family Season has been held for three consecutive years, with an aim to re-awaken people's yearning for a better life in the post-epidemic era, as well as the emphasis and care for family life.

Driven by innovation, Fosun has precisely targeted family customers, adhered to its C2M strategy, and formed a vertical closed-loop C2M industry. By horizontally opening up these vertical C2M closed loops, Fosun formed a large FC2M ecosystem that fully covers family needs and optimizes the value for family customers, so as to realize the multiplier effect across industries in the ecosystem.

At present, the FC2M ecosystem has been implemented in multiple fields such as medical services, healthcare management, pharmaceutical circulation, rehabilitation and elderly care, financial management, fashion and entertainment, and quality consumption. As the linkage between the in-depth interaction between Fosun's ecosystem and family customers, Fosun will continue to focus on the pain points of customer scenarios after the Fosun Family Season, tap customers' inner desires, creatively integrate M-end capabilities and connect to C-end needs, and continue to facilitate Fosun's Industry Operations.

Our original aspiration is to create value for family customers and we must persevere on this path. Fosun Family Season is iteratively evolving every year, regardless of the scenario, the people or the products, we will always optimize consumer interests and gave back to family customers to intelligently create a healthy, happy, and prosperous ecosystem for family customers around the world."
