Sustainability Business Opportunities in the USVI Webinar Series

Sustainability and economic revitalization are monumental challenges that must be addressed in tandem, especially in the wake of COVID-19. As a public-private partnership that has been at the forefront of efforts to diversify and strengthen the US Virgin Islands economy, the UVI Research and Technology Park (RTPark) is dedicated to bringing public and private stakeholders across myriad industries to build safer, more sustainable, and more inclusive economies.

It is in this context that we have designed a four-day webinar series featuring a cross-disciplinary group of subject matter experts and other key stakeholders to provide valuable insight and perspective on sustainable development in the US Virgin Islands. In RTPark’s vision, sustainable development cannot occur without incorporating three critical sub-sectors: 1) renewable energy; 2) ocean economy, and 3) sustainable agriculture. The sessions provide an overview of each sub-sector, and opportunities for the private sector to capitalize on the US Virgin Islands’ emerging competitive advantages by leveraging the financial and technical resources of the RTPark and other institutions. 


Renewable Energy Industry in the USVI

We discuss the current state of the renewable energy industry in the USVI and the business opportunities and challenges. Additionally, we talk to businesses about their ongoing experience in the industry.


Sustainable Agriculture in the USVI

We take a closer look at the current market and where we can go next with agriculture digitization and commercialization. We also get the perspectives of an agricultural tech entrepreneur and an investor.


Blue Economy in the USVI

An overview of the blue economy in the USVI, marine conservation, and insight from those with experience in the marine business sector. 

Leveraging RTPark's Resources for Success

The final webinar session of our series focuses on resources for companies to invest in the U.S. Virgin Islands and understanding the accompanying benefits and requirements. 

Client Testimonials

Our firm, The RainTree Group, came into the UVI RT Park program in 2018.  We didn't have much experience in the USVI and followed the advice of the wonderful RT Park staff and other RT Park tenants.  The application process was transparent and straightforward.   The simple concept of the Park is mutual benefit - your company gets some tax incentives that allows you to grow your business more quickly and the USVI and UVI gets additional tax base, employment opportunities, and scholarships for deserving students.  The business environment and life in the USVI is slower paces and less stressful as the mainland, and without question the biggest business hurdle is communications, so find an office location where you have investigated the broadband options. Come and join us, you won't regret it!

In January 2012 my business was underway as a Tech Park entity. It has been a wonderful seven years. The Tech Park has always been supportive, easy to do business with, and is making a positive impact on the islands. The Tech Park organization is professional and efficient. They have created a friendly business environment that has been a pleasure to work within and a great experience overall. I would encourage any eligible entity to consider joining us in the Tech Park.

We have been part of the RT-Park program for almost three years now.  The application process was straight forward and we had plenty of dialogue and feedback prior to our approval.  My only regret is we didn’t do this sooner.  It is satisfying  knowing that we are partners with UVI and enabling the education of the next generation .  We also love living in the USVI.  People are warm and welcoming and the pace of life is amazing healthy.  Most days it feels like a working vacation.

There are many unique treasures to living here. I’ve discovered a passion for mountain biking. My children have learned to sail. With a small community, you get to know people quickly. We found they went out of their way to make us feel welcome. When considering the move, a top concern was the children’s education. We found a quality school our kids love, with a dedicated faculty. In fairness there is an adjustment period. You learn to navigate island life, master shipping logistics, get to know a new culture, and take in some of the most beautiful ocean views in the world.
