A new cohort of ambitious digital entrepreneurs are set to take part in the latest Digital Jersey Tech Start-Up Bootcamp.
Following a successful inaugural programme last year, the 2024 Bootcamp will be held in collaboration with PwC, KYC360 and TEKEX and over the course of 12 weeks will give tech business founders taking part an exciting opportunity to develop, launch and scale their tech-based business ideas, within a sandbox environment.
Bootcampers were selected to take part in the 2024 programme following an application process at the end of 2023 that once again attracted an impressive and diverse range of digital innovators. A total of six businesses were ultimately chosen to be supported through the programme.
Over the course of the programme, this year’s Bootcampers will take part in a range of workshops, masterclasses and one-to-one sessions, including an initial workshop delivered by Google Cloud, and receive the full support of Digital Jersey and its network of experts, with the ultimate aim to help make their business ‘investor ready’.
Bootcampers will also work with a personal mentor, tailored to their specific business idea, and enjoy full access to the Digital Jersey Hub. At the end of the 12 weeks, participants will have the opportunity to present and pitch their ideas to a panel of judges and investors.
Digital Jersey CEO Tony Moretta said: “Our first Bootcamp was a great success and it’s been fantastic to see the diverse range of Bootcampers who took part in that use their experience and go on to continue to pursue their ambitions and develop their ideas in different ways. That’s exactly what the programme is about.
“Connecting people and giving them the tools they need to shape their – and our island’s – digital future is very much our focus at Digital Jersey. With that in mind, and looking at the cohort we have joining the programme this year, I’m really excited to see how the Bootcamp, with the support of our collaborators PwC, KYC360 and TEKEX, can continue to nurture digital creativity and success in the island.”
