Verbier, Switzerland & Kea, Greece are Twins

Twenty years ago, Verbier, Switzerland was still primarily a ski town. But many leading entrepreneurs had the vision to create a year-round community. They started to ‘colonise’ it and develop it, solving infrastructure challenges along the way. Today many people live in Verbier year round taking advantage of its beauty, village life, and contributing to the ambience.

Similarly Kea is a fantastic holiday destination – The Little Known Greek Island of Kea – The Athenian Secret, and swells to 10,000 during the summer. But only 2500 people live in Kea all year round. The island is full of investment opportunities and has many infrastructure challenges from water, to energy/electricity, healthcare and education. It has many high-profile but discreet politicians, and entrepreneurs and has mostly kept its head down for the past decades.

Kea – The Smart Island

The Keanaissace Smart Island Challenge will forge a Circular Economy Template in Kea attracting significant start-ups and entrepreneurs who wouldn’t have otherwise contemplated going to Kea.

VIVA Investment Partners has plans to develop a Smart Island through Private and Institutional Investment into Businesses that can create communities, innovative energy and mobility platforms and networks across the islands.

Kea is an easy island visit: One flies into Athens Int’l and takes a taxi to Lavrio Port (20 minute trip/€30 fare) and then the ferry to Kea.

Leading Property Developers, Architects & Designers as well as Technology, Energy and Telecoms firms will participate at Keanaissance Edition 2 – Annual Event in Kea – Keanaissance
