Archipelago Rising is a symbol of elevating the best, new emerging knowledge. An Archipelago is a group of underwater mountains which have risen out of the water to become visible. We work to make Archipelagos of knowledge and talent rise higher for professional application; building "islands" of learning, literacy and accomplishment. Archipelago Rising refers to a principled, expert system of knowledge curation, intellectual property management, and learning. A basis for energetic organizational growth, evolution, and professional achievement. It is an approach to knowledge validation which can compliment, augment, and at times challenge aspects of the traditional academic paradigm. It refers to the ida of an archipelago in general and alludes to the Greek archipelago specifically because we value wisdom and communication practices stemming from antiquity.
