The story of a vibrant and proactive hub - Innovation Factory
& their  for bringing communities together








Our team works to create a vibrant network of social enterprises, NGOs, mentors, and investors around 180 DC Consulting in Barcelona. The main goal is to serve small-scale social ventures through the deployment of consulting teams focusing on specific problems, leveraging contacts, developing innovative approaches and an eco-system.














We are constantly engaging with people outside the core team (e.g. professors, other students, other companies, etc.) when feasible. Furthermore, the Innovation Factory hopes to work as a synergy engine in connecting potential clients between themselves and building a strong network of socially-conscious organisations in Barcelona.

One of the main additions is the organisation of events aimed at creating a network of social impact ventures and related stakeholders (e.g. mentors and investors). These events will have different formats such as networking initiatives and workshops. In the future, we hope to host fundraising and investment pitch events.
















Looking in longer-term strategic plans, Innovation Factory is aiming to achieve a status of being the central facilitator to the communities of 180 DC consulting, universities, and the social impact ecosystem of Barcelona. We are planning to engage our constantly enlarging network to other clients to conduct new projects, workshops, and events.

Case 1: Veggie Karma

Case 2: Instituto Escalae





























Veggie Karma is a Barcelona based start-up that produces artisan, vegan and gluten-free products, respecting both the environment and the animals. Its main product, plant-based cheese, is sold over the internet and partner shops in Barcelona. Veggie Karma goes beyond the standard food producer scope and aims for the highest impact possible along the value chain and on society. Currently, Veggie Karma is redesigning its website to improve its sales funnel and brand building.


Instituto Escalae is currently transforming educational sector. Having its origin in educational impact measurement they engaged with both private and public institutions worldwide. In 2015 they introduced a new platform called TeachersPro, aiming at developing teachers skills through tailored content and peer review. Access to the platform is sold on institutional and individual level. Participants can receive certifications of their acquired skills by the Finland and Malaga Universities.









Innovation Factory assisted Veggie Karma by taking an in-depth look at Veggie Karma’s business model as well as the current and future’s websites, and provided recommendations for structure, design and the embedment in the sales funnel to streamline the future customer acquisition and customer journey.




Innovation Factory engaged with Instituto Escalae in a workshop to identify strength, weakness, opportunites and threats of TeachersPro and developed different future scenarios and steps to strengthen the products placement in the market.












“It has been very helpful to have an eagle-eyed multidisciplinary marketing team watching our website project at its early stage. We received many inputs in different fields such as user experience, social media, content, or web structure among others. Your team is well-coordinated, professional, and decisive. “

Seeking, initiating, building & facilitating coalitions for change


Seeking, initiating, building and facilitating coalitions for change
First initiative to build a fertile soil for the future.
It was challenging.
But we succeeded.

















At the heart of Innovation Factory lies the assumption that radical change cannot be achieved alone. For the first event of its kind, the outcome was very successful. We received particularly good feedback for the presentation and led a discussion on impact measurement. Clients have shown a high level of engagement through participative contribution and investment opportunities. The participants recognized an actual network from which they can benefit in the future and thus are highly interested in future events.
