The creative economy or “Orange Economy” as it’s known in the region, generates more than $177 billion dollars a year and provides jobs for over 10 million people in Latin America. With 20% of the population between age 15-24, LATAM is leading the world when it comes to using digital technologies both to create new stories and preserve traditional culture. Upstart proposes a conversation in Spanish to highlight creative economy activity across LATAM.
