Argentine Exponential Design. Creative Bootcamp is an intensive training program co-produced by the British Council and Bunge y Born Foundation, developed for the first time in Argentina to enhance the skills of local companies and entrepreneurs in the creative industries. The program was delivered in partnership with STEAMhouse, an Innovation Centre powered by Birmingham City University to curate the contents from the UK, and curators Florencia Lovera and Wustavo Quiroga designing the contents from Latin America.
In its first edition, 15 companies were selected from over 100 applicants, coming from areas such as industrial and product design, research and development of differentiated materials, fashion and textiles, contemporary crafts and interior design. The companies are Casa Capital, Mantara, Lola y Chango, Espina Corona, Bambuniverso, Blackñandú, Hifas biocreaciones, Mansha, ADN Sustentable, Sadaels, Claudia Santanera, Dacal, Velasco, Mutan and Oda Biovajilla.
During 6 months they received intensive training and mentoring sessions from British and Argentinean professionals. The results were presented at the closing event on the 3rd and 4th October in at the ArtLab Buenos Aires, in a pitching format before a jury of investors, representatives of accelerators and universities, from which 3 companies were selected to receive seed funding from the programme. The investment will be used to strengthen the positive impact at a social and environmental level, and the implementation of new technologies. The final day was open to the public with presentations on global impact experiences delivered by British professionals Lucy Hardcastle and Patrick Stevenson, leaders of experimental and digital design.
