Summary: 

  • In our country, the president is very supportive and we have a large number of young people that will need jobs. Furthermore, our mayor became the governor of the province, and we have the reputation as an emerging creative city.
  • A creative economy ecosystem has four components: human resources, products, market, and research/development. It is very community based and requires the collaboration of different agents.
  • Social enterprises are a new concept for us, and we try to think about impact rather than finance in order to stimulate social value.
  • We are currently facing many problems such as business incubation, expanding market, acceleration, investors that have impact investment, and government support. Still, we have a lot of potential in including youth and culture.
