Island Collab is a series of events by and for the local business-minded community. Founded in November 2018 by local Art Director and Media Unicorn Yeiniz Nevárez.

Our first event was directed to the startup community on Small Business Saturday #ShopSmall. We gathered local shops and media experts to motivate entrepreneurs to grow their businesses.

Puerto Rico Loves Yoga & Wellness (PRLY) gave a Thanksgiving meditation, followed by a digital talk by Social Wave Agency. Together Media Unicorn Yeiniz, Nayda from PRLY, and Yeira from Social Wave hosted a conversation on the necessary tools to grow your business in this the digital age.

We came together with 4 local business owners to host a micro bazaar. Including:

Motif Concept Store - an online store curated for the professional young women, WHO IS SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT. The entrepreneur, career-driven, with unique sense of style, and all that jazz. 

Drink With Style - who elaborates designs that highlights different aspects of our Puerto Rican culture in reusable cups. Committed to the environment and to reduce the generation of garbage. 

Sol Angélica Makeup - professional makeup and lash lifting treatment expert. Sol develops an image that provides confidence and self-esteem in each person she touches.

Noel Rolón Photography - took professional portraits at our event. This local photographer has a keen eye for capturing the essence of the moment. Head shots, family and kid sessions, weddings and more.

After the event we made a giveaway with two prizes one for event attendees and one for a lucky social media follower. Each prize had six presents from participating vendors and collaborators. Including a massage from local wellness center and spa, Nouvelle D’Spa, and energy supplements from 4Life.

Each month we’ll be hosting an event with a different theme or industry focus. Our end goal is to connect small businesses with their particular local tribe. Giving them both an opportunity to build meaningful relationships in-person.  

Our events provide a space where you can network, create leads and gain feedback on your business interests. Go to our 2019 Schedule to find your particular tribe at future events.
