Medellin recently received global recognition as the world’s ‘Most Innovative City.’ The award, from the Wall Street Journal and the Urban Land Institute recognized not only the city’s innovative businesses, but also its innovative strategy to overcome violence and reclaim neighborhoods. With the emergence of a new economy that is based on digitally enabled production, communications and lifestyles, advanced enterprises are networked rather than centralized, customized rather than standardized, and aim to deliver locally sourced products and services.

The Medellinnovation District will provide a space where traditional and new industries can converge in a creative cluster to invent 21st century products, ways of doing business, and lifestyles. The district will create an envrionment in which the people who make up the innovative ecosystem can work, live and interact.
