Guernsey’s Startup Hub has been established by the Digital Greenhouse and the States of Guernsey to provide free and inclusive support for new business and entrepreneurs. It is a combination of online services, face to face support and accelerator programmes, all designed to provide entrepreneurs with a one-stop-shop to connect them with the rich and diverse expertise of Guernsey innovation ecosystem.
The purpose of the Startup Hub is to be a focal point on Island, for the delivery and development of Guernsey’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, providing space and facilities, advice and mentoring for start-ups and businesses looking to grow.
This new virtual space has something for every stage of the new business cycle with a wide range of multimedia content, case studies to inspire and links to help you begin your journey. Free and impartial advice can be found on our Business Essentials section with topics ranging from clarity on navigating jargon-heavy legal, finance and insurance matters, to successfully developing a brand and planning marketing.
The Startup Hub provides free and impartial information for new business and entrepreneurs that includes one-to-one support meetings to answer any questions and sign-post to other services. Working together with our key partners, we can help connect you to the expertise you need to grow your business.
Early stage, new or fledgling business ventures can take advantage of our business accelerator programmes and networking events with Barclays Eagle Lab. Access free expert mentor support and structured sessions to accelerate from business idea to reality!
For those already established and looking to grow further, access international markets or diversify your business, Scale-up support from Blenheim Chalcot might be the perfect route for you. Apply for personalised mentoring from the hugely successful venture builder via the SMART Guernsey Economic Development programme.
The Startup Hub’s online services are complemented by a well established annual programme of events, workshops and networking on offer bringing an exciting mix of innovation, creativity and business growth specific events. Series such as Digital Marketing Meetup, Lunch && Code and the Innovation Lab provide opportunities for special interest groups to meet, develop networks and exchange advice on a regular basis.
