JOIN US and be part of a new era

HIDE

Covid is forcing the adoption of new realities. Leading thinkers have talked about these realities for years but sometimes it takes something drastic to force us to change, learn, and adapt; even with some discomfort. Now is the time to shift away from old school models that were destined to fail anyway: patterns of mass production, consumption and dependencies that take away the resiliency and independence that our ancestors once had.

Even pre-Covid, iBoom.FM and other programs of GemRai were already on this new path, and we have developed new solutions and models to make the needed changes, and to soar to meet new opportunities. Our new generation Telco is the infrastructure to bring us onto the same playing field as the rest of the world. Our passion however, is on the applications and opportunities thereafter: telemedicine, tele-education and applications that are tailored to our Pacific island cultures – that fortify the gifts we have and can give the world. We are the navigators.

We are going to leap ahead, like our flying fish. We are going to attract the brightest minds and bring jobs to our nation. A brand-new economy is going to be added without having to sell off our natural resources, and without having to leave our shores. We care about creating a local digital economy where everyone has a fair chance of getting trained and employed in areas where they can excel.

We invite you to become a part of this new era – an era of Pacific Islanders building our own economy and carving our own future. Let us navigate our own future and like our flying fish, soar ahead.

For years I have been trying to figure out what is the most impactful way to give back to our home islands. I have had lots of night less R&D, over what feels like 100's iterations of models, and due-diligence dealings with all sorts of players and agencies.

                          Call it serendipity or answers to prayers, along the way, I have been                        blessed to attract the best talented minds, old & new friends &                        colleagues, where a team was formed organically and continues, not just for their specific roles and skill sets, but for their love of our Pacific Islands.

A TELCO LIKE NO OTHER, INTEGRATED INTO 

OUR TRADITIONAL COMMUNITIES

​Everything we do is made possible by a community of stakeholders, employees, relatives, and  friends of Yap who –despite varying locations and backgrounds– are held together by the same passion and vision for Micronesia and the rest of Pacific Islands. Our mission is to deliver solutions that meet local needs unique to remote Pacific islands. We are like no other Telco operation. Using an exceptional fusion of modern technology and indigenous knowledge, we can improve the overall options for individuals, communities & villages, businesses, organizations and Gov Agencies. Our technology further strengthens traditional systems. As a bottom-up, community-based operation, we empower local people by leveraging iBoom's technology advantages.  It takes a village. Join the village.

A NEW MODEL NOT CENTERED ON REVENUES FROM LOCAL USERS AND COMMUNITIES

We are creating a brand-new digital economy never before seen in FSM, and expanding those solutions thru sharing, collaboration, iterations, and learning from our Pacific Island Brothers and Sisters all around us. What truly sets us apart in the Telco space is that our business model is not revenue focused on internal local users. In fact, our goal is to make it extremely affordable, which we are, with a bigger vision in mind. We seek to fill the gaps in the current infrastructure so that we can deliver community services that have a major impact locally, develop our people, and with a business model that's geared towards bringing in revenue from outside --as opposed to relying on charging hefty fees locally.

JOIN US!

Covid is forcing the adoption of new realities. Thought leaders have talked about these realities for decades but sometimes it takes something drastic to force us to change, learn, and adapt; often with discomfort. Now is the time to shift away from old school models that were destined to fail anyway: patterns of mass production, consumption, seeking high-foot traffic and dependencies that take away the resiliency and independence our ancestors once had.

Even pre-Covid, GemRai, parent company of iBoom! along with programs forthcoming, we were already on this new path, and we have developed new solutions and models to make the needed changes, and to soar to meet new opportunities. Our new generation Telco is the infrastructure to bring us onto the same playing field as the rest of the world. Our passion however, is on the applications and opportunities thereafter: telemedicine, tele-education, empowering applications. And it does not end there, we are creating new digital economies that have never been seen before in our nation. Economies tailored to our Pacific island cultures – that fortify the gifts we have and can give the world. We are the navigators. We are masters of nature-integrated technologies. However, risks abound us, and we are also stewards to protect these gifts, these Gems.  

Hence the ingenuity of our flying fish, soaring above the waves. With full vision, we are leaping ahead.

FROM THE FOUNDER

Call it serendipity or answers to prayers, along the way, I have been blessed to attract the best talented minds, old & new friends & colleagues, where a team was formed organically and continues to grow, not just for their incredible specific roles and skill sets, but for their love of our Pacific Islands.

For years I have been trying to figure out what is the most impactful way to give back to our home islands. A 20+ year journey comes full circle and a thousand iterations of  steps to arrive to this point.
