De-LAB is a group of professionals whose different technical skills are required to develop applied research projects, consultancies and initiatives in the field of Inclusive Business and Social Innovation. The team works for universities, firms, private or public institutions. De-LAB’s services are in between the academic investigations and innovative projects to be implemented in a profitable and sustainable way: we aim at representing a synthesis between the innovativeness of the research and its practical implementation.
Since March 2013 De-LAB has developed a training course on Inclusive Business with a specific focus on Africa. The initiative, sponsored by a platform of non-profit and institutional partners, will be part of a Summer School awarding the best African student with the financial support to launch his/her business idea. Additionally, De-LAB collaborated with the High School of Environmental Studies of the Catholic University of Milan developing a training session devoted to Inclusive Business Project Development. Thirdly, De-LAB is exchanging ideas and building its own network together with NGOs, Foundations and private companies in order to raise the awareness about Inclusive Business Initiatives.
