The global digital hub is a project that focuses on the transforming power of creativity, which is capable of generating dialogue and ties of union across borders and cultures.

Economía Creativa’s mission is to work with people, businesses and institutions, with a bottom-up approach and holistic/cross-sectoral perspective, to identify opportunities in the digital era, harnessing creativity and entrepreneurship to designing innovative and effective action plans for business and economic development.

Its journey has led it to work on assignments across Europe (Spain, UK, France, Belgium, Poland, Moldova, Ukraine, Hungary, among others), and at a global level in Africa (Morocco and Angola) for institutions such as the European Commission, British Council, Foundations, NGOs, businesses and corporations, entrepreneurs and creative hubs.

The organization helps its clients understand how people’s behaviour and social changes impact their businesses and institutions to create the best action plans, identifying the power of their own story, harnessing creativity and linking culture to their organizations’ storytelling.
