Kuartango Lab is a centre for innovation and entrepreneurship located in the building of an old spa in Kuartango. It is the best example of how a problem can turn into an opportunity. It was a medicinal water centre until the beginning of the 20th century and prevented companies and institutions from settling in the building, so it was necessary to start something "different". Kuartango Lab started its operation in 2021, as a business incubator with co-working, meeting rooms and a theatre: spaces full of advantages to favour the settlement of companies and associations and promote the development of innovative projects.
