“Build a creative community based on a culture of collaboration and openness.”
These words came from Carina Soto – a new soul sister. A sister of the same “Core Value Family” as mine, a sister you recognize straight away. Carina is based in Paris and runs the company Quixotic Projects with lot’s of amazing bars.
I met other soul sisters as well, Elena Arzak, Trine Hanemann, Maria Canaball and Gabriella Ranelli. They all work for good, clean and faire food, i.e Slow Food Values and they all make change in their communities and in the world.
We all met during “Culinary Action” on the 1st and 2nd February, at the Basque Culinary Center during the third edition of their International Forum of Entrepreneurs, a special encounter to learn from and exchange experiences, perspectives and management strategies. I was attending and giving a talk on the second day of the forum.
In this edition of the International Forum of Entrepreneurs, special emphasis was placed on urban entrepreneurship, seeking to share with the audience testimonies about how the reality of large cities condition the way we eat, produce and/or distribute food.
Entrepreneurs from around the world
The event, which was part of the Culinary Action initiative, brought together entrepreneurs in the agro-food and gastronomic sector from different parts of the world to San Sebastian. See all the speakers here and look at the resumé of the event below.
