In the middle of Panamanian jungle, a small town has been forming. Not just any town, a place that is re-imagining everything from civic infrastructure, to sustainability, education, ethics, creativity and more– all while celebrating the lives and passions of everyone who encounters it. The place is described as “a new village being built in a Panamanian river valley to bring together entrepreneurs, artists, scientists and modern day romantics.” This is Kalu Yala, the brainchild of Jimmy Stice, a real estate pioneer, marketing aficionado, and an all around cool guy with good ol’ Southern charm. On this episode Innovation Crush (recorded in the jungle), Jimmy discusses how Kalu Yala came to be, what he’s had to navigate to build his vision, how the essence brand extends beyond it’s physical locale, and what it takes to be a leader of a massive undertaking.
