innovation labs

migrant-led, immersive and pop-up in nature,
labs set the stage in emblematic spaces for innovation to happen


migrant leaders, trained in
inter-culturality and lab facilitation, they

Labs are where ideas are born and get tested,
as innovators give shape
to new products and services
