Innolab: social impact project

Max Oliva is passionate about empowering ordinary people to do extraordinary things in teams. He started his first entrepreneurial adventure more than 18 years ago, connecting youth from across the world with Nobel peace prize laureates, scientists, social entrepreneurs and more than 200 Heads of State in order to find solutions to the global challenges of the XXI Century. Since then, his passion for exploring and engaging in glocal projects has taken him from learning journeys to Antarctica, together with young entrepreneurs and scientists in order to experience first hand and fight climate change; to co-founding five social enterprises, amongst them the largest high impact entrepreneurship network in the world, Impact Hub.

Born in Mexico, Max has lived in four countries and has traveled to more than 60, having developed projects, delivered classes, conferences and workshops in more than 30 countries with organizations such as Stanford d.school, Unreasonable Institute, Mondragon Team Academy, Aiesec, KaosPilot, St. Gallen University, among others.
