The Medellin Hub is a dynamic community of 42 fellow Shapers that is constantly collaborating, sharing resources and expanding our collective intelligence. We can say our Hub is truly representative of our city because of its diversity: Shapers from every socio-economical background, field, race, religion converge to make our Hub integral. Medellin is a city that needs articulation and engagement among the different communities and sectors, therefore our aim is to foster citizenship, understanding a citizen as someone who actively shapes her/his city through her/his passions in collective efforts: collaborating and co-creating.
We have five on-going projects born at the hub: Construyendo de la Mano (Building hand-by-hand), mentoring project to young girls at the last two years of school; Yo Participo (I Participate), promoting informed voting and youth participation; CTI, promoting sciencie and technology as part of the government plans; Tours alongside Medellin and its story and Finally, a project to promote volunteers.
Our commitment to the entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystems is always present and goes from hosting events to running hackathons where we create and incubate startups and collective solutions to the city’s biggest issues.We had the pleasure of hosting SHAPE LATAM 2016, strengthening the bonds between the Latin Hubs and developing strategic alliances for the future of the community in our region.
