RTPark Internship Program

The RTPark is dedicated to providing real work experience and learning opportunities to the students of the Virgin Islands. The RTPark internship program is intended to be educational, inspirational, and purposeful. At the end of the program interns should have a significant list of accomplishments to add to their resume and set them apart from other candidates in their field. We offer interns a chance to experience life as a RTPark team member first-hand; our interns have real responsibilities and work alongside our experienced team of smart, motivated people.

RTPark Fellowship Program

The RTPark Business Development team is supplemented by graduate fellows from both the University of the Virgin Islands as well as from partner universities on the mainland USA. Our fellows are responsible for supporting key elements of the RTPark’s business attraction and retention strategy. They play a vital role in helping to execute key business attraction and entrepreneurship activities. The primary focus of the fellowship program is on sector/industry research, supply chain analysis, creation of company-specific value propositions, and the planning and implementation of one or more forums designed to educate and inform prospective new clients as to the benefits of locating a business in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

 

Client Testimonials

In January 2012 my business was underway as a Tech Park entity. It has been a wonderful seven years. The Tech Park has always been supportive, easy to do business with, and is making a positive impact on the islands. The Tech Park organization is professional and efficient. They have created a friendly business environment that has been a pleasure to work within and a great experience overall. I would encourage any eligible entity to consider joining us in the Tech Park.

Our firm, The RainTree Group, came into the UVI RT Park program in 2018.  We didn't have much experience in the USVI and followed the advice of the wonderful RT Park staff and other RT Park tenants.  The application process was transparent and straightforward.   The simple concept of the Park is mutual benefit - your company gets some tax incentives that allows you to grow your business more quickly and the USVI and UVI gets additional tax base, employment opportunities, and scholarships for deserving students.  The business environment and life in the USVI is slower paces and less stressful as the mainland, and without question the biggest business hurdle is communications, so find an office location where you have investigated the broadband options. Come and join us, you won't regret it!

We have been part of the RT-Park program for almost three years now.  The application process was straight forward and we had plenty of dialogue and feedback prior to our approval.  My only regret is we didn’t do this sooner.  It is satisfying  knowing that we are partners with UVI and enabling the education of the next generation .  We also love living in the USVI.  People are warm and welcoming and the pace of life is amazing healthy.  Most days it feels like a working vacation.

There are many unique treasures to living here. I’ve discovered a passion for mountain biking. My children have learned to sail. With a small community, you get to know people quickly. We found they went out of their way to make us feel welcome. When considering the move, a top concern was the children’s education. We found a quality school our kids love, with a dedicated faculty. In fairness there is an adjustment period. You learn to navigate island life, master shipping logistics, get to know a new culture, and take in some of the most beautiful ocean views in the world.
