Claro Partners hosted the first Informal Economy Symposium in Barcelona. Our goal was to abandon the conventional idea that the informal economy is the other economy. The symposium elaborated on its expanding scope, socio-economic value and the possibilities for established businesses to meaningfully collaborate and participate.

The event brought together leading businesses, thinkers, and practitioners for two days of keynote speakers, panels and workshops. Participants walked away with the raw materials, building blocks, and inspiration to develop new business models and innovation methods for the next economy.
