Innovation Award 2014 Most Impact on the Economy
In December 2014, CITI (Curacao Innovation & Technology Institute) awarded 10 entrepreneurs for different categories of innovation. Creative Lab Curaçao was awarded MOST IMPACT ON THE ECONOMY for the initiation of the creative enclave in monumental Scharloo Abou.
According to the award committee, Creative Lab Curaçao is an example of new economy entrepreneurship where sharing and co-creation are leading over competitiveness. Co-working spots will change the landscape of the monumental world heritage city Willemstad, and Creative Lab Curaçao gives the creative sector of Curaçao a boost towards becoming one of the economic pillars of Curaçao.
As Gonneke van den Kieboom, initiator of Creative Lab Curaçao, states: we are aiming towards Curaçao becoming the Creative Capital of the Caribbean. We see our creative professionals as valuable assets for export of the creativity products and services, while creating excellent facilities for growth of the sector on the island within Creative Lab Curaçao.
