Jersey Innovation Fund - Open Dicussion
JIF Advisory board
Digital Jersey is delighted to welcome members of the JIF Advisory board to host an open discussion at the hub on Tuesday 14th July 2015 from 12.30pm - 14.00pm.
Launched at the end of 2013, the Jersey Innovation Fund (JIF) provides funding and support to entrepreneurs, start-ups, and established organisations that are looking to bring innovative (and Jersey-based) products or services to the market. The JIF is an important element of the States of Jersey’s strategy to deliver growth and diversification in the local economy. It has been designed to support projects with innovative potential to help them deliver short-term, high growth opportunities, which will ultimately help to create local job opportunities.
‘This lunchtime session will provide an informal opportunity for the Digital Jersey community to meet members of the JIF Advisory Board, to gain a flavour of the work that we have been doing, to correct some of the misconceptions that may exist about JIF and to ask questions about its role in supporting innovation in Jersey’ – Tim Herbert, Chairman of the JIF Advisory Board
