IN ACTION

Take a sneak peek into a day-in-the-life of one of our initiatives, The Base by CyprusInno.  The Base by CyprusInno, a Social Impact Generator™, combines the elements of a coworking center, meeting/office space, accelerator/incubator, innovation center, and multimedia studio located on the grounds of the historic Ledra Palace in Cyprus’ UN Buffer Zone in the city of Nicosia, the last divided capital in the world, and is the first space of its kind in a demilitarized zone, positioning Cyprus as a potential model for other countries and regions.  It was our first implementation of a Social Impact Generator™.

ORIGINS

OUR STORY

SocialTech Lab originated back in 2016 originally under the brand name “CyprusInno,” which was its first peacetech product in the market and was the result of two founders from opposing communities coming together to build a platform for peace innovation in their divided country.

We built our first physical space in 2021 in Cyprus’ Buffer Zone – an innovation center and events space featuring a coworking space, an ideation lounge, a multimedia studio for podcasting, and a conference room.
