The Program

Developed by the Renova Foundation’s Promoting Innovation Program in conjunction with the Wylinka organization, Mariana Labs is an online business development program for generating opportunities and developing new innovative and sustainable businesses in Mariana. The idea is to also launch this project in the near future in other locations impacted by the Fundao dam collapse.

According to Gabriela Metzker, Economy and Innovation analyst at the Renova Foundation, Mariana Labs is another example of the entrepreneurship and innovation movement in the city. “The program aims to contribute to the diversification of Mariana’s economic matrix, historically dependent on the mining industry, through the generation of new businesses, new jobs and new forms of profitability for entrepreneurs and also for the municipality,” she says.
