OUR APPROACH

Island Innovation is a social enterprise that works with rural and island stakeholders and taps into our global network to find innovative and locally-appropriate opportunities. Islands worldwide face similar development challenges that can be approached using modern technology and sharing good practices.

We build digital bridges between far-flung islands to find the most innovative sustainability solutions.

SUSTAINABLE

We focus on innovation for sustainable and scalable impact. This includes prioritizing capacity building and local ownership of the outcomes, working with existing programs and local institutions. Our projects are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.

CROSS-SECTORAL

We apply a collaborative, inclusive approach that engages public, private, NGO and academic stakeholders to maximize impact. In small island communities, it is vital that all sectors are involved for projects to have the best outcomes.
