Online PR News – 12-December-2020 – Montevideo, Uruguay – Last November 11th the first innovation meeting by the InnovationLab was held at 1950Labs’ offices. It was the excuse to present the bran new department to the local innovation & startup ecosystem. Triggered by the motto “From another point of view” (#fromAnotherPointOfView), two lectures took place.
Macarena Botta and Leonel More (founders of the InnovationLab) carried out the meeting’s opening, in which they told the public how this venture was born and what its objectives are.
Immediately afterwards, Brian Lorenzo and Julieta Caputo (team members) presented the philosophy and services provided by the InnovationLab team. They mentioned the success stories they have in their portfolio, exemplifying each
of the three basic services that the company provides. They also orchestrated an interesting activity, playing on the company's name and a survey, which was handed to the participants in the days leading up to the event.
Then, Josefina Correa (special guest), told her personal innovation story. An inspiring tale, she went over the early stages of her career; from her work and studies in the United States, her career in an outstanding business accelerator, to her return to Uruguay, seeking to connect science with the rest of the world through startups.
The stage was set for a small audience, given the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. However, the meeting was made available to the world through a livestream on Zoom.
After the lectures, a casual networking space was set up for the attendees, who had name tags and cue cards to trigger conversations.
