We had an inspiring Global Entrepreneurship Week Session on Nov 15- “World Changing Youth”.

During this session you got to hear from some of our amazing youth, the things they’re doing and the support and mentorship they have received along their entrepreneurship journey. You also got to hear from the Island17 team on their passion to support the youth and ensure that the youth inherit a safe world.  For those who had to leave early or weren’t able to attend, here is the video replay of the event.

The “Jedi Council” of Island17 & Dream Tank

Island17 Youth Summit & Hackathon

Youth are struggling right now. 😓
We’ve been listening.

They don’t feel safe, and they don’t see many options in their lives to dream a different future, and build it.

Positive action in collaboration with others with meta-leadership support has been proven to drastically improve mental health and wellbeing. And we need them as much as they need us right now.

Join us to celebrate the next generation of leadership & purpose-driven lifestyle from August 17-20, 2022. This is both for ADULTS with an ADD-ON YOUTH SUMMIT to include most ages.



The Island17 Youth Summit will be held from August 17th through August 20th 2022. This 3-day virtual plus IRL hackathon is an experiential and collaborative summit integrating music, art, tech, entrepreneurship, and mentorship to address local/global challenges.

This value-packed event has been underwritten by Orly Amor and her Health, Wellness Network of Commerce Centers &Trust, the Island17 DAO team, and partners ExOEconomy, ExO Angels, Logos Capital, our Ambassador of Hope Chilopod, and her AI chatbot to prompt global humans, especially youth, to inspire mental health and wellbeing.

One main thing that nobody really talks about is how diverse the entire space is. Let’s say you like art, go create NFTs. Let’s say you like hacking, you can be a developer. It’s genuinely like a whole universe of opportunity and it’s not biased.
