Why "Beyond the Beach?"

We teamed up with Ingrid Riley at the very beginning of preparing for this event. Ingrid actually suggested Beyond the Beach as a name for the event. Here's what she had to say about it:

“Beyond The Beach is both an event as well as an intention.
We seek to support the repositioning of Jamaica and the Caribbean, beyond the typical perception of being solely a place where you come to get your groove back and your tan on, towards a Caribbean that is known as a place where Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Excellence lives, Beyond the Beach.
 It’s also about how we carry out our mission in connecting Caribbean Entrepreneurs and Tech Talent to the opportunities of this Digital Age and to help them take full advantage of it.
It is no accident that Beyond the Beach is being staged in Kingston, Jamaica’s Capital City- it’s hub of Business, Culture and Technology.”
     - Ingrid Riley, Founder SiliconCaribe, Kingston Beta & Co-founder Caribbean Seed Fund

This is why it is called Beyond the Beach!
