The Digital Jersey team works closely with counterpart agencies to provide business support to local entrepreneurs, corporates, and inward investors, including links to investor groups who can assist in securing business funding.
Digital Jersey supports Jersey Business in helping entrepreneurs assess their investment options, and advise on how to approach this crucial stage in their development. This guidance is complemented by our strong relationships with a number of investment groups and individual investors.
Our signpost funding tool aims to identify your best route to funding. The tool is currently a work in progress and we encourage feedback so we can make the tool as useful to small businesses as possible.
Digital Jersey is also investigating a number of funding initiatives aimed specifically at encouraging enterprise and growth within the Digital Sector; keep an eye out for future developments.
