Global Growth Programme Launched in Guernsey

We're excited to announce the launch of Guernsey’s first Global Growth Programme in partnership with venture-building experts Blenheim Chalcot. With six Digital Greenhouse businesses taking part, this pilot programme will accelerate the growth of locally developed tech ventures.

The programme focuses on developing and implementing growth strategies to break into new international markets. Each business will be paired with an expert mentor and participate in a series of workshops focusing on key areas, culminating in the businesses attending WebSummit in November, the world's largest tech festival. This opportunity enables them to hear from leading experts and meet with key industry leaders, businesses and investors. 

The participating businesses, each a graduate from our business development programmes including the most recent Guernsey Venture Challenge, represent the essence of Guernsey's entrepreneurial spirit. While rooted in Guernsey, these businesses share a collective vision of reaching global markets. Spanning healthtech, eventtech, marinetech and more, each business brings a unique proposition, reflecting the breadth of innovation emanating from the Guernsey ecosystem.

 

Jasper Joyce, Director of People Acceleration at Blenheim Chalcot commented, “The Global Growth Programme looks to be an excellent addition to the SMART Guernsey ED Programme. Offering tailored support through Blenheim Chalcot’s Red Team, in addition to mentoring from across the BC portfolio and seed funding via the SMART Guernsey ED Programme, enables this cohort of businesses to accelerate their growth strategy in an impactful and meaningful way. We’re hugely excited to work with these entrepreneurs over the coming months and see them flourish ahead of their visit to Web Summit at the end of the year.”  

Dave Wratten, Co-Founder of Stage Portal commented “We are very pleased to have been invited to be a part of the first Global Growth Programme and to be heading to WebSummit. Particularly as a developer, I am excited to hear from industry leaders at the cutting edge showcasing the latest developments and being able to meet with key investors.
