Ruta N

Ruta Medellín

The project’s main objective was to articulate the Science, Technology and Innovation ecosystem to transform Medellin into a knowledge economy, with innovation as a core element. To achieve this, the project set out three strategic priorities: attracting talent, capital and international companies to the city; developing and strengthening the innovative and entrepreneurial business fabric; and generating scientific, technological and innovative solutions for the city’s challenges.

Zabala Innovation carried out the exploration, establishment and generation of valuable alliances with potential international partners that promote initiatives of interest for the Medellín Life Sciences Hub and improved its visibility and international positioning by promoting it among stakeholders and strategic partners. Zabala Innovtion also facilitated the identification of funding opportunities in international cooperation projects.
