AboutHyper Island

Below are six key guiding principles that unite, define, and guide the Hyper Island experience:

Lifelong Learning

At Hyper Island learning isn't contained in a classroom or a course. Learning is a way of life: being constantly engaged, passionate, trusting and curious about the changing world, and to learn by doing.

Real World Ready

We collaborate with thought leaders and experts to anticipate industry needs in a world where innovation are driving disruptions. We may not be able predict the future, but we can support individuals and companies to be ready when it comes.

Lead the Change

We are active participants in the great tides of transformative technology. Tomorrow's leaders will be those who embrace change, adapt swiftly to new paradigms and lead by action. We seek to inspire, equip, and support these new leaders.

Seize your potential

Hyper Island empowers passionate participation by challenging people to set ambitious goals by giving them authority over their own learning, and power to realize their own potential.

Team is Everything

Collaboration, inclusion and transparency are crucial to growth. Through constant feedback and deep reflection, individuals gain deeper self-awareness, enabling them to become more effective team members and leaders.

Change the World

We haven't met a status quo we didn't challenge. Together we can change the world by igniting a passion for lifelong learning.

Our Methodology

You can probably tie most of our major progress as a civilization to some form of technological innovation in our entire history.What seems old now were once innovative breakthroughs back in their heydays.

Revolution and disruptions come in waves when the world needs it. Nothing is new. Society, individuals and businesses rise and fall accordingly to how well they anticipate or adapt to these changes. Many disruptions are often just new innovative ways of solving old problems.

Innovations are a result of original thinkings, and originality comes from the ability to think differently, which is strongly linked to creativity. Here we don’t believe that creativity is a fixed inherent trait. The crucial part is if the individual or organization is in the right mindset, and if they are equipped with the right methods and tools needed to unlock their full potential.

For all that to happen, companies and individuals first need to step away from assembly-line thinking and gain a deep understanding into how creativity works, what is needed for it to thrive before and being able to apply it to their work effectively.

By using a set of methodology that focuses on the why as much as the how and the what, on team collaboration instead of individual effort, we challenge participants to grow personally and professionally. We introduce new ways of thinking and learning for participants to develop themselves into lifelong learners.
