The start of an annual tradition, this winter Innovadores organized a New Year’s trip to Havana Cuba for a group of 10 young professionals in the fields of design, marketing, engineering, tech, and architecture.
In addition to the regular Innovadores activities—including meetings with entrepreneurs, a tour of Old Havana, and dinners with Cuban creators—this trip focused two of the most interesting areas of Cuban culture and industry: Art and Agriculture.
