Eight local tech ventures have been shortlisted for the 2023 Guernsey Venture Challenge.
Run by the Digital Greenhouse, these techpreneurs will now undertake an intensive 6 week accelerator programme with venture builders Blenheim Chalcot, in preparation to pitch for £70,000 of early stage funding in September.
This is the second year that the challenge has been run by the Digital Greenhouse and this year saw a significant increase in tech-focused entrepreneurs, looking to leverage new digital tools, platforms and their expertise to form scalable ventures.
For 2023, the Digital Greenhouse are welcoming Cloud Wealth, C-SectionUK, KIWI, Petlearnia, Stage Portal, The Fund Society, Three Brain Training and WXplr to the accelerator. The businesses span a range of sectors and all use technology at their core.
Each business has now been matched with an expert venture building mentor and will undertake masterclasses to support them ahead of their final presentations. The Guernsey Venture Challenge final will see the businesses compete for one of three prizes, £40,000, £20,000 and a third prize of £10,000.
The winners will then be presented their prizes at the Véyaon Awards on the 16th of November at Beau Sejour.
