A creative firm will represent the Universidad Nacional de Colombia (UNal) Manizales during the third version of this event which will take place in Santiago de Compostela (Spain).Manizales, 09 de agosto de 2016 — Agencia de Noticias UN-
Structures made with diverse materials such as paper and plastic tubing are part of Dinámico LAB creations.
The choice of being part of only 30 projects which will participate in business plans and rounds as well as workshops and consultancies was taken after the organizers analyzed each one of 100 proposals submitted this year.
Previously and as a requisite both the local company as well as others around the world participated in a University of Texas virtual course, consultancy and mentoring program with the purpose of improving their business initiative to speed up their coming to market.
“This was the first step in order to be considered in the final selection. Now they will have the opportunity to showcase their project during the event with a presentation of their business proposal to get a benefit from the investments,” said Steven Delgado, a RedEmprendia spokesperson who socialized the project.
The proposal of Dinámico LAB conforms to the Maker movement, a social and technological social phenomenon which has its origins in Spain, United States and Mexico. The movement arrived in Colombia less than five years ago.
The nature of the so-called makers is to create new products or transform existing products using their capabilities, assisted by technology, design, recycling, painting and confection.
Based on that innovator spirit and expanded to other countries such as Brazil and Chile, the Dinámico Lab team designed a mask that projects sensations to the user, as well as a hexagon lamp or colored geometric structures for theatrical groups, for instance.
“During the first year of activities Dinámico LAB has stood out for its transforming and inclusive potential, as it favors all types of communities and people through open creative participation processes. Also it has provided innovation in multiple occasions to develop spatial experiences and original objects,” said members of the Entrepreneur Innovation Park.
The members of the initiative of creating collectively with tools at their reach claim that the greatest contribution they will showcase at Spin 2016 will be using these resources. They promise to revolutionize the manner in which people consume, related in the physical world.
“Spin 2016 is a unique space for positioning Dinámico LAB as an innovative leader and source of creativity among peers, customers and investors in Ibero America,” they said.
This year the event will take place between September 29 and October 2 and they will also participate in a business agenda which includes an investment forum and the possibility of each team to share experiences, secure and improve their knowledge from new tendencies and technologies which emerge from academic research around the world.
