Demand Solutions is the IDB's premier meeting for innovation and entrepreneurship that brings together some of the world's most creative minds to share solutions that improve lives.
This year, they selected the 13 best startups to present their initiative in Miami and Hilo Sagrado from Colombia stood out for being a platform that connects ancestral talent with designers and companies to develop exclusive artisan products that rescue the cultural legacy and penetrate the global ethical market.
Through empowerment programs and collaborative cloud design, they have helped 150 women in La Guajira Colombia to increase their earnings by up to 600%.
Hilo Sagrado has a multidisciplinary team of leading women in the areas of engineering, design and social innovation with more than 36 years of combined international experience.
In 2016 they were incubated by NYnow's Artisan Resource, the most important lifestyle fair in the United States.
Hilo Sagrado is a member of the London Ethical Fashion Forum that recognizes 500 pioneers globally for their work with ethical trade and sustainable fashion.
