A little over ten years ago, in the Capão Redondo neighbourhood in Sao Paulo’s Southern outskirts — one of the most deprived areas of the city — the Fábrica de Criatividade (Creativity Factory) project was born. Created by the entrepreneur Denilson Shikako, 34, the innovation consultancy was established in 2007 and to this day operates in the same headquarters. Currently serving large companies in Brazil, it still maintains social projects in the region, always aiming at creating and transforming. The Creativity Factory is an example of what can be achieved by more sustainable capitalism focused on fighting against inequality and advancing opportunities, especially for the most marginalized.

Dunker, author of more than 15 books and with 30 years of research and clinical practice, talks about solitude, ethical conflicts, politics, obscurantist speech, and human education for the challenges of the future.

New businesses, connected with the needs of the market. Creativity. Security for those who invest and those who create. These three ingredients are the foundation of Magellan Advisory, a start-up created this year by economist Leonardo Winocur in São Paulo. The aim is to provide security for those who are able to invest in new ventures and to facilitate fundraising for those who need it. All of this while also thinking about new types of businesses created in the contemporary world.

Technological evolution and the behavioural changes arising from it pose not only the challenge of preparing children and young people, but also the difficult task of proposing an education which prepares adults for things such as the clarity of risks, the need to build the future, and the need to enable a more conscious attitude upon innovation processes.

Imagine living in a place where there are no rules, conventions or punishments of any kind.

Based on the 1973 film, with the same name, by the screenwriter Michael Crichton, creator of hits such as Jurassic Park (1990) and medical drama ER (1994), the complex plot full of twists and the big-name cast has captivated the public, making the series a hit for both audience and critics.
