The winners of the inaugural Véyaon Awards recently celebrated their success alongside all the nominated and shortlisted finalists.

More than 180 people gathered for the Digital Greenhouse’s event at St Pierre Park earlier this month, to highlight "individuals and businesses who have strived to take risks to grow and succeed in 2022".

Charles Mindenhall (pictured), Co-Founder of headline event sponsor Blenhiem Chalcot, took attendees through a history of innovation through a Guernsey lens before the seven awards were presented along with two traditional prizes - the YBG Bill Green Award and the winners of Guernsey Venture Challenge. 

The winners of the awards are:

  • Creative Entrepreneur sponsored by TPA: Aaron Smillie, Founder of Digital Motion Workshop 
  • Disrupter of the Year sponsored by C5 Alliance: Crewdentials 
  • Digital Leader of the Year sponsored by Sure Business: Patrick Cunningham 
  • Entrepreneur for Good sponsored by Islands Insurance: Trevor & Catherine Nicholls, Founders of EaseeDo 
  • Learner of the Year sponsored by JT Global: Michael Creber 
  • Innovation in Technology sponsored by PwC: Crewdentials 
  • Scale Up Business of the Year sponsored by Resolution IT: Black Vanilla 
  • YBG Bill Green Award: Rachel Le Mesurier 
  • Guernsey Venture Challenge winners: first prize NionNet Origin, second prize EaseeDo, Youngpreneur prize ISO-Pass 

Lucy Kirby, Director of the Digital Greenhouse said everyone who had been involved had shown great promise. 

“It is a pleasure to have launched the first Véyaon Awards, celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship in Guernsey. Véyaon meaning ‘go for it’ in Guernésiais highlights where individuals and businesses have strived to take risks to grow and succeed. We hope that this home-grown showcase inspires others to follow in their footsteps.”
