Bermuda boasts an active corporate community which leverages its networks and which partners to help others on the Island, especially the third sector.

The Island’s very active third sector not only includes voluntary and charitable organizations as well as community groups, it also includes companies and individuals who contribute - donors and volunteers. As such, the over 400 registered charities benefit from the support of the companies that contribute over $33 million annually in addition to the individuals that give almost $50 million per annum, and the volunteers that donate over 2.7 million hours a year.

First contested in 1851, the America’s Cup is yachting’s most coveted prize. In the more than 160 years since the first race, only four countries – the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Switzerland – have experienced the euphoria of winning the "Auld Mug" and only eight cities have hosted the competition. For the races in 2017, the 2013 winner, Team Oracle, chose Bermuda as the home and first-time host of the America’s Cup.

Throughout its history, the America’s Cup has been driven by technology. The America’s Cup in 2013 marked a transformation for the oldest trophy in international sport with new wing sail foiling catamarans, cutting-edge technology and a close-to-shore venue.
