* Is the recession just a mindset of an individual?
* Do we feel that companies will not invest in our ideas because it's not marketable and it's too much of a risk'
* How do we achieve the impossible?
* Can we really set up a business in a time like this?
The answer is yes and London Creative Labs aims to help people create their own work. It's all about generating different ways of starting a business without feeling restricted. If there are any restrictions, then what can you do to overcome them?
Sofia Bustamante started off the session with a introduction about how the organisation got started. The idea of London Creative Labs was given birth through a trip to Bangladesh in June 2009. She got an insight into the Grameen organisation and this is where her destiny became clear. In the same way that the Grameen organisation are reducing poverty in Bangladesh, London Creative Labs aims to tackle poverty in London and increase employment.
During the end of the session everyone shared what they gained from the session.
London Creative Labs have an organic mindset and offer a different way to look at creating or finding work. I definitely recommend coming to one of their events and seeing it for yourself, it's not an opportunity not to be missed.
I would like to thank Sofia, Sylvana, Mamading, Annette, Rocio, Vicky, Nicholas and the London Creative Labs volunteers for giving the community a truly awesome experience.
