You know you’ve made it when your holiday home sits on a secluded island resplendent with fine white sand, pristine waters and not a single other holidayer – because the entire island belongs to you.
Like Fredrik Haren, a Swede living in Singapore – and the owner of two private islands; a 30,000 square meter island in the Philippines’ Palawan and a 2000 square meter island in Sweden near the capital of Stockholm.
Haren is an author of one of The 100 Best Business Books of All Time, The Idea Book, and was recently featured in the Singapore International Foundation’s book, SingaporeInsights from the Inside. Having bought the islands as an investment and for personal use, Haren realised that for large parts of the year the islands remained unused – and so Ideas Island was born.
Ideas Island is dedicated toward fostering business creativity. If you’re an author finishing a book, a marketing managers conceptualizing a plan, a CEO drawing up a new strategy or an entrepreneur looking for the next big idea – you can stay on the island, for free.
