Commissioned by the Secretary of Culture of Distrito Federal and by the Ministry of Culture and implemented by Instituto Bem Cultural, the innovative project Território Criativo DF requested Garimpo de Soluções to respond both for its Technical Coordination and for its Coordination of Content, Research and Benchmark.
Between April 2017 and April 2018, we co-designed the work plan, aiming to inspire the potential entrepreneurs and to offer capacity-building throughout the territory.
The first phase of the project covered 14 Cities in Distrito Federal. From August to December 2017, it focused on potential entrepreneurs, interested in converting creativity into economic value. We reached over 800 potential entrepreneurs, from all different creative industries.
The second phase, from January to April 2018, targeted innovative businesses in the fields of Music, Audiovisual and Fashion Design. Five local companies were selected in each of these industries and took a complete acceleration programme – from capacitation with leading-edge content to workshops of design thinking, individual mentoring with experts and preparation for pitches with investors.
