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

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.
