The deadline for applications for the Guernsey Venture Challenge is fast approaching.
Launched earlier this year by the Digital Greenhouse in partnership with Blenheim Chalcot, the initiative is Guernsey’s first funded start-up accelerator competition.
Open to new businesses based in Guernsey looking to launch and grow, the opportunity to win early-stage funding to accelerate their development has been met with much interest from the local community.
The venture challenge brings £65,000 of funding to support local start-up businesses including a £40,000 top prize, £20,000 second place prize and a £5,000 ‘youngpreneur’ award to support an entrepreneur under the age of 25.

Businesses can apply directly on the Digital Greenhouse website, applications will close on 1 July and shortlisting will take place over the following weeks.
Selected successful businesses will receive an intensive 6-week programme of support from an expert mentor during the summer to prepare for the competition pitch finals will be held in early September.
