Startup Guernsey is delighted to launch a new initiative to support local startups with free advice from marketing, startup, tech, e-commerce, legal, accounting, recruitment and networking organisations in Guernsey.
So far, over 40 companies have signed up to support the programme to help local startups access networks and knowledge from local businesses.
This free weekly drop-in service is open to all and takes place at the Digital Greenhouse and provides an opportunity for startups and entrepreneurs to meet with experts from local businesses who can provide specific expertise and support on an informal one-to-one basis.
The first drop-in session takes place this Friday 23 September from 3-5pm and includes the opportunity to meet with marketing experts from Specsavers, LRD, Indulge, Ripple, All Things Social and The Potting Shed. All of the experts will be on hand for one-to-one discussions which will allow local entrepreneurs to get some insight and advice on a range of marketing topics.
Attendees are encouraged to bring along their laptops if they have anything specific they want to show the experts, such as logos, websites or social media platforms.
Jennifer Strachan from Startup Guernsey said:
