Carla Harris, director of Digital Jersey commented:

“We are delighted that our new membership has attracted such a keen interest so far. The membership is a fantastic opportunity for us to provide support to both startups and companies within the digital sector to work towards strong growth and development of the digital landscape in Jersey as a highly important and ubiquitous area. We are also very keen to work with partner members and their product and service offerings to introduce a new and developing client base.”

Tech Member, Danny Bannister of Total Solutions Group:

"Our engagement with Digital Jersey has been on an individual and corporate basis with significant benefit derived in both areas. We have attended thought provoking and interesting seminars, found new talented recruits and contact has been facilitated with influential decision makers. I am very much looking forward to our products and services being part of the Member & Services Directory. I can speak for my business and team when I say not only do we enjoy our engagements with Digital Jersey but the island’s technical industry, of which we are a part, is now fully represented and gaining world-wide recognition as a centre of technical excellence and innovation."

An informal meeting will follow on Thursday 20th February 12.00-13.00 at Digital Jersey Hub whereby we invite all members of the public to join us and learn more about the membership offering. Please register your interest by emailing rebecca.elliott@digital.je
