DIGITAL GUERNSEY: GREAT PEOPLE: GREAT INNOVATIONS
After its successful inaugural event in 2016, FinVention was held for the second time on Wednesday 15 November 2017 at St James as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week, which is celebrated in 125 countries across six continents worldwide and is celebrated locally by Startup Guernsey.
Combining three central themes – Digital Guernsey, Great People and Great Innovations – FinVention 2017 was an interactive one-day forum showcasing ‘the best of breed’ in innovative technological products and services in the FinTech, digital, creative and start-up sectors.
The FinVention Stage featured a number of fast paced presentations from individuals and companies who had products and services at different stages of development; some at the initial stages of securing investment, others more mature and will have adapted to the ever increasing consumer demand for innovation and invention.
FinVention was an opportunity to connect participants to potential collaborators; to demonstrate inventive ideas to secure interest and constructive feedback and to attract first or second-stage investment into technologically driven products and services across all types of business.
