Tech Beach is produced by the Destination Experience, a platform designed to attract global wealth, innovation, leadership and media to connect with the Caribbean business ecosystem on a mission to help elevate the image of the Caribbean as a business destination, driving entrepreneurship, investments, partnerships and innovation in the market. In January of 2017 the community pulled together a collective of individuals controlling equity exceeding US$100 billion and has generated deals exceeding US$300 million in investment for Jamaica across a number of industries. The community has been honoured by President Obama at the Whitehouse, The World Economic Forum and Forbes magazine amongst others. The Destination Experience community is the brainchild of entrepreneur Kirk-Anthony Hamilton.
We’ve built an active conference community with Tech Beach Retreat, providing a nexus for the global tech ecosystem to connect with the best companies in the Caribbean. The goal is to build bridges that yield increased investment, partnership and mentorship spurring an entrepreneurship and innovation revolution in the Caribbean, unlocking the full economic potential of the region through identifying industries ripe for profitable disruption to elevate the Caribbean out of emerging market status. This is an early stage opportunity to connect with one of the world’s last frontier markets.
Tech Beach was co-founded by Kirk-Anthony Hamilton, Phineas Mpofu and Kyle Maloney.
