We are a creative and social business incubator placed in Lanzarote (Canary Islands). We host creative and business people who want to either help us to develop our projects or start up a new one themselves with our mentoring.
We support entrepreneurship and selfemployment linking creative people to business opportunities that Lanzaorte can offer.
Lanzarote it is the only Canary Island that has special balance between economic growth or business development and sustainability or rural/slow life and quality of life. In that sense, the island has many possiblities to be a perfect playground to create new experiences, products and services that enhance this special balance between progress and common sense.
We have different project in portafolio, so depending on the project we are working on we may need one type of professional profile or another. However, we always are looking for talented and creative people who want to make a change, leave a seed in this world.
However, the volunteers always have to go through different process or functions to assist our project:
- Market analysis, that means searching on internet, data base, benchmarking, etc. as well as doing interviews, checking concurrance, doing misteryshopping, etc.
- Brainstormings, workflow mapping, and other crowdsourcing techniques.
- Implementation (building either through online or offline). Depending on the project/product or service, will require support from different profiles/skills.
Besides our own projects we also give mentoring to selfemploy volunteers who may like to start up a business or work as a professional in their field in Lanzarote.
We are settled in a hostel that is runned as a 'alternative center' for retreats, workshops and also the incubator of MadeinLanzarote.
We provide a 4 beds dorm with ensuite bathroom.
We offer one free meal a day (lunch time)
We have free wifi availabe.
We also share other activities from the hostel to the incubator volunteers as:
- Yoga and meditation sessions
- Cooking classes
- Surf lessons for beginners
- Massage workshop
- and others..
