Jan Kriekels is the non-conventional entrepreneur. Coming from a background in anthropology he seeks ways to transcend the traditional views in industry, art and economy. Currently he sets out the lines for theradiatorfactory.com in Belgium. He is a huge promoter of the 'creative economy', letting people design their own products. Being the project's mecenas, Jan looks to Uchronia as being a symbol for the creative economy. Uchronia is but the start of a larger project involving all creative souls worldwide. You can see a preview for the DVD below.
