Becky

“I relocated my social media business to Jersey last year and it was the best decision I ever made. My quality of life completely changed – waking up each day paddle boarding, sailing and with the beach and the fresh air has been incredible. I love the lifestyle here, the restaurants and places to go to are just fantastic and my friends all look forward to coming to stay! One evening we decided to get a boat to France and back for dinner, dolphins all the way! I couldn’t believe how friendly everyone was when I moved and I just feel so much safer and happier here than back in the UK.”

“Business wise, the lower tax is a huge pull and I’ve had so much support from other entrepreneurs who want to network, which I love about Jersey. Ironically, it’s cheaper and quicker for me to get to London for meetings than when I was located in the Midlands. I can leave on the red eye and be back in time to watch the sunset!”

Testimonials
B. King, a Start-up and Telecoms expert
J. Merten, a Fintech Consultant

“Having been based in Coventry for the past 25 years but originally from rural Lincolnshire I was ready for a change. We have two young children (ages 5 and 8) I wanted to give them the opportunity to grow up, as I did, being able to roam the countryside safely, on the other hand we also didn’t want to give up convenience and appeal than an urban environment brings.

Where we have ended living in Jersey is semi rural surrounded by fields of potatoes and cows!, town is 5 minutes away with the added bonus of many beaches also just minutes away. The children can come home from school and we can be on the beach 5 minutes later. Also, as a successful tech entrepreneur from the UK ISP sector the discovery that the island already enjoyed full fibre internet was a godsend.

My only regret is that we didn’t make the move sooner, I would encourage any start-up tech businesses to look into the Jersey opportunity sooner than later, there is a wealth of experience and talent available to help you progress, and if you are seeking investment there is a wall of money waiting for the right opportunity.”

““Digital Jersey has been key for me to bring my business forward. Their network helped myself, my clients and their business partners to successfully expand their activities. But not only the virtual network, but also providing a physical presence, “the Hub”, is essential for the island’s tech community. Giving local companies the space to meet and exchange ideas is really a driving force behind the current growth of the Jersey tech industry. The team behind DJ is amazing. They really focus on making Jersey a pearl in the tech world. I am deeply grateful to be part of this, and to have the chance to grow with them.”
