Digital Innovators sponsored by First Central Group

The Digital Greenhouse is extremely pleased to be working with First Central Group to deliver Guernsey's Digital Innovators programme. The programme, now in its second year, is designed to deliver a range of exciting opportunities for young people to engage with digital technologies. Working with the expert team from First Central, students are able to get involved in hackathons, workshops and events to develop their skills through real hands-on learning. Following a successful pilot in 2018, the focus of this partnership is to provide a series of events to allow students to develop their digital skills as well as the soft skills required for working in the sector.

John Davison, Chief Information Officer at First Central, said:

“It's been a pleasure to work with the Digital Greenhouse for the past six years to deliver the ever-popular Digital Innovators Programme and the Discover Digital Internship. Year on year more students show an interest in expanding their digital skills knowledge, meaning the opportunities to upskill the students continues to grow and we can help to expand their knowledge and strengthen their digital literacy.”

Charles Mindenhall, Co-Founding Partner, Blenheim Chalcot:


“We are delighted to be part of Guernsey’s journey to becoming a leading digital hub. Our partnership with the Digital Greenhouse has helped to provide Guernsey with opportunities for learning, innovation, and entrepreneurship. The last year has seen the Digital Greenhouse and its community travel over to London for exciting new initiatives like Showcase Guernsey and the Innovation Summit, and I enjoyed visiting Guernsey in September to judge the Guernsey Venture Challenge. The work of this programme continues to improve the digital skillsets of the island’s people, creating a diverse network of digital enterprises and helping to launch and scale new ventures. We are extremely excited for what 2024 has to offer.”
