About Us

The TechislandUK Initiative is designed to stimulate the debate about how to develop the Isle of Wight’s economy as a digital economy.  We are supported by the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) who have part-funded this website and supported the development of the debate on the island through a Stakeholder Conference held in October 2016.

The project is fully supported by the Isle of Wight RSA Fellows Network. We have also been funded and supported by Coralesce ltd and Millimages SA.

The Island is great for me because it’s such a beautiful, peaceful place. Rent is extremely cheap compared to London – but it’s just a couple of hours away. This means I can invest more in my own business whilst enjoying a greater quality of life.
