Futura: Aruba Innovation Lab

Futura is an SDG Innovation Lab and its team supports the Aruba Government in the design, development and implementation of a national innovation strategy, focusing on 3 main pillars: people, planet and prosperity. Each project or initiative is designed to contribute towards a thriving innovation ecosystem. Futura is committed to creating a better more sustainable future for our people, planet and communities, by applying the U.N. 2030 SDG Framework and leveraging the island of Aruba as its experimental lab for sustainable solutions.




Envisioning the future takes knowledge, creativity, equality, and action. We create pockets of space in the Aruban society where innovation can thrive by making it accessible to anyone who is open to change and /or explore new ways of doing things.


Driving inclusive growth with protection and preservation of Aruba’s natural resources in the equation. We raise awareness for the island’s limited resources that demand a transition to a circular economy.


We believe that our people are our biggest asset and our human-centered innovation strategy puts the prosperity of the Aruban citizens first.




The Team

Futura applies an agile way of working and each project or initiative is led by a diverse team, consisting of dedicated project leads, part-time or full-time team members, student interns and/or project-based contractors.
