London Creative Labs 1.0
London Creative Labs was started by Sofia Bustamante after an inspiring trip in June ‘09 to Grameen HQ in Dhaka, Bangladesh. During the trip she got a deep insight into the highly effective Grameen organisation and returned with a vision of applying the principles and practices of Social Business to tackling worklessness and poverty in London.
Over an intense period of a few months, Sofia engaged with many social innovators, entrepreneurs and other collaborators to identify the challenges facing her vision. This led to a creative and agile process that resulted in the conception of the first program for London Creative Labs: The Job Labs!
