      Welcome to what will soon become the most comprehensive business and employment Web site in the United States Virgin Islands! We are very glad that you are here.
      This site is in the early stages of development, but we just could not wait for another day to get this baby online. This site will be constantly updated and expanded. We will be intensely busy researching and selecting information to place on this site.
      We are convinced there is a critical need for a single source of useful information for entrepreneurs, investors, small businesses, job seekers or anyone interested in doing business in this wonderful place that has always been our home - the Virgin Islands.
      Our mission is to develop a very useful business site where anyone interested in doing business in the Virgin Islands can advertise products and services. We want to put at your fingertips useful information to assist you in exploring business opportunities, making connections, or finding employment. As we grow this site, you should be able to access information about tax incentives, available resources, office space, procedures to follow, connecting with the right people and links to other business-related sites.
      We are completely committed to the idea that making information readily available is a big part of being business friendly. With a click of a button, people interested in these islands should be able to cut through the red tape and get information quickly. There should be no need to contact a dozen agencies. There should be no hoarding of information and there should be no mystery on how to start a business, how to get a business loan, a business or professional license, an insurance policy, an attorney, a consultant, and an up-to-date listing of executive and professional jobs in the territory.
      If you are interested in business, you are the most important partner in this online publication, and we need to hear from you. We are asking businesses and organization spokespersons, marketing directors, government agencies and PR personnel to join in this business venture by immediately sending press releases, news commentary, announcements, copies of speeches, schedules, survey results, pictures and other business-related information. Put us on your mailing list and please send us your suggestions on what information you would like to see on this Web site. This information should be sent preferably by email to
      Keep in touch with us frequently and let us be of service to you.
      By the way, we are not a government agency nor a business conglomerate, so feel free to talk to us and tell us what you need. We will be delighted to dialogue and do business with you.
