After Sonero 2016, we explore possibilities for collaboration between two very different communities. We expect its main benefits to be mutual learning in three areas:

  • Business proper. How to identify and colonize niches, etc.
  • Broader community well-being and resilience. How to mobilize the social network centered on each company, building value and autonomy for all.
  • Core community well-being and resilience. Living/working arrangements, rituals etc. Emphasis on ultra-micro "nuts and bolts" behavior.

Social innovation and international connectiveness in the European Caribbean

Led by Las Indias

Client: one or more regional governments (Guadalupe, Curaçao etc.)?

Europe has a colonial legacy in the Caribbean. Its inhabitants are legally and culturally part of Europe. They suffer from a disconnect from the mothership. Mainland Europe suffers too, as these territories are a natural bridgehead for commerce with Latin America. We attempt to bridge this gap by turning them into a hotbed of social innovation/business model innovation. 

Common CAPS project in 2018

Led by Edgeryders

Donor: European Commission, DG  CNECT

Edgeryders succeeded in securing a large EU-funded research project (http://opencare.cc) under the CAPS program. A new call is out as of October 2016, with deadline April 25th 2017. We attempt to leverage Edgeryders' earlier breakthrough and relative success so far to secure a second project.
