About Us

Our vision is for innovative, thriving and confident island communities. All year round.

Our mission

We want to be a digital agency with a difference! As an asset-locked social enterprise (CIC), we are here for the benefit of our island communities.

What we do:

  • We build great websites for anyone, based anywhere.
  • We consult and advise on digital projects and strategy. Nothing is too big or too small. 
  • We are a Gaelic-speaking organisation who can offer Gaelic language or bilingual sites.

 

With our profits:

  • We grow and develop concepts like isle20.com and isleHoliday.com – which both directly benefit our island communities.
  • We offer subsidised digital support to island community groups.
  • We offer free digital consultation and advice to island-based entrepreneurs.

Can we help?

Our Story

Isle Develop grew out of the isle20.com project during lockdown. 

Covid19 crystalised for many of us the risks of relying too heavily on tourism. It showed the need to keep striving for innovation and diversity. To ensure that our island communities are not only resilient – but have strong, healthy economies.

Isle Develop has been created as a home for the original projects which inspired it, and as a digital agency to create island jobs – as well as great websites! 

We are a Community Interest Company, and all profits will go back into new projects.

What makes Isle Develop special?

We are rooted in the Scottish islands. Our Directors and staff are all permanently resident in the islands. They all operate their own small businesses, and are active in their communities. 

We know what it takes to set things up from scratch. We don’t pretend to know all the answers, but we work hard and we’re willing to learn!

We are all passionate about creating secure futures for our islands. We want our communities to be the main beneficiaries of our projects. We want to experiment, build and learn. 

We dream big, start small and move fast.
