우리는 섬을 샀어요! 

2018년 초, 섬을 사는 게 꿈인 몇 명의 청년들이 모였습니다. 목적은 크라우드펀딩으로 섬을 살 수 있는지, 한번 도전해 보는 것이었죠. 첫 시작인 만큼 확실한 게 없었지만, 실천 방법은 간단했습니다. 120명의 투자자로부터 3,250 달러 씩 자금을 조달하여 총 40만 달러의 목돈으로 섬을 하나 사 보고 수익사업으로 활용할 수 있도록 인프라를 개발시킬 생각이었죠. 그런데 이 프로젝트를 살리려면 […]

Our New Island: Coffee Caye

In late December, IBG Inc. – more commonly known as Let’s Buy An Island  – finally purchased Coffee Caye, an island in the heart of Belize, a hidden gem in the Caribbean. We couldn’t be more thrilled, and some of us could hardly wait to visit our new property! Five of us landed on Coffee […]

Moving forward with our project!

Getting our island right before Christmas and New Year was a great achievement. We were determined that 2019 would be the last year we did not own an island, and we all managed to pull it off at the end. Of course, not everyone could be there but it was great to see OUR people […]

We Bought an Island

Let’s Buy An Island – all eyes forward!

Buying an island is something that is hard to put a timeframe on. Anyone who has bought property in any part of the world will know that these things take some time, so consider factoring in a global search for land and seeking investor funds too! This is a new project and those that have […]

Islandians on Tour!

Where does an Islandian go on holiday? Our investors are a well-travelled bunch. Some have travelled to over 100 countries and there are a fair few travel geeks amongst us. Our investors have previously met up in a number of locations around the world, but ever keen to get off the beaten track, our next […]

The Islandian Flag Challenge

When starting any project, or indeed your very own nation, one of the most important things is getting yourself out there. Getting people to recognise your new project, or indeed your new great nation is part of the challenge. It is with this in mind that we invite our 59 investors, almost 200 citizens, and […]

Two years later…

It is almost two years ago now that I was informed that Nici Island in Coron was for sale, and enquiries made as to whether I would like to purchase the said island. At the time (and still, unfortunately) I did not have the money to go it alone. I decided to float the idea […]

Moving forward with Buying An Island

Working towards buying an island has been quite a ride. Many have tried and failed and we are almost there. When we embarked on this project we had some pretty ambitious targets. We would all love to be sitting on our own island right now of course, but good things come to those who wait. […]

What does it mean to be an Islandian?

As a new nation, club, or concept with less than 200 members, we are still trying to decide what it is to be Islandian. All investors, directors, and shareholders are Islandian. There are currently 198 of us. We are an extremely diverse group from dozens of different countries, so whilst a lot of things make […]
