It is a space designed to promote associative initiative, which can be used by businesses, institutions and neighbourhood groups to arrange events, exhibitions and activities designed to promote civic and business synergies.

    However, it can also host events organized by KBi Digital and the projects and professionals located in the incubator.

History

A building constructed in 1960 for industrial use but never used became, 50 years later, a factory for creativity and innovation in the heart of the Bilbao neighbourhood of Matiko. It is a building at the service of a new city economy.

 It is an innovative building with an impressive facade, made up of galvanized steel cable trays illuminated by LED screens, giving it personality and a futuristic image, in keeping with the centre's philosophy. The property was built in the nineteen sixties by the Irazabal family which, in 2013, donated it to Bilbao City Council with the single condition that a place should be set up to promote economic development and social cohesion in the neighbourhood.
