A Collective Multidisciplinary Approach Increases Knowledge and Wealth in a Community

A community is a virtual or real, indoor or outdoor authentic experience representative of and rooted in the local history and traditions of a territory.

It works best with informal, friendly interactions between guest and host 

Participants are new entrepreneurs, existing small businesses, nonprofits and local government all working together in a laboratory designed to acquire and constantly update knowledge and learning skills.  

The result: a sustainable and full cultural immersion that is both product and market oriented and generates new wealth for your community.
