Properly letting an idea flourish into an action plan and then the final product is easier said than done, but the Ideas Island may be the perfect opportunity to let it evolve. It is a private island that can be used for free by creatives with pre-approved ideas. The brainchild of Swedish creativity expert Fredrik Härén, the Ideas Island is based on the belief that good concepts require a quiet place devoid of interruptions to flesh out.
To access one of two Ideas Islands, people must send a brief detailing who they are and what idea they would like to pursue. Haren then chooses certain people to spend one week at a time at the Ideas Island. Those chosen are encouraged to make a $1000 contribution to charity. But placement is not contingent on that.
