In this podcast, Kika Yang talks to Erik Ackner, Country Manager at Startup Grind and former organiser of Startup Grind in Chengdu, about the innovation ecosystem in China. This podcast is part of the series recorded against the background of the CITYMAKERS Social Entrepreneurship Competence Lab.
Laura Bruns was the first participant to be invited by Kika Yang to step away from the lively environment of the CITYMAKERS Lab, in order to share her stories with a wider audience. Having been in close contact with subcultures at an early age strongly influenced her and led her to her future dedication as an urban strategist. The co-founder of StadtStattStrand speaks about the project “Urbane Liga”, the importance of lobbying and building trust as well as their publications launched to empower citizens to ‘just do it’.
