To incentivize participation and reward value added, Stewards and other contributors may receive equity stakes in the Island Earth Compass, a new for-benefit development corporation that will facilitate the work leading up to the Summit and provide ongoing technical and research support, financial investment, and follow up.
With a mission to help realize the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, Island Earth Compass will be distinguished by its democratic Steward-guided programs, the ability to directly invest in and accelerate the development and deployment of programs, open and inclusive management of deal flow, use of island living laboratories, and ongoing organization of innovation summits.
At the Island Earth: Ocean Innovation Summit, engaged principals will finalize and implement action plans, review and celebrate the launch of the first portfolio of ocean impact initiatives, and seed the next round of innovation. Together, we will close the loop from ideas to regenerative solutions and establish a self-sustaining engine for ocean innovation.
