A NEW EVENT TO SHOWCASE GUERNSEY, ITS GREAT PEOPLE AND THEIR GREAT IDEAS.

A NEW EVENT TO SHOWCASE GUERNSEY, ITS GREAT PEOPLE AND THEIR GREAT IDEAS

FinTech, Innovation, Digital Entrepreneurs, Invention and Business Diversity are all key phrases that abound in the fast developing world of financial and digital technology and how it can provide the pivotal competitive advantage for a company, organisation or corporation.

FinVention 2016, supported by the States of Guernsey, will bring all these key phrases together in a new event that is about the “best of breed” in the world of innovative technological products and services in the FinTech, digital and start‐up sectors. Products presented at FinVention will be in various stages of maturity and will include Guernsey and International start‐ups as well as mature businesses.

Using a fast paced format whereby presenters will have no more than five to seven minutes to present their product or service, FinVention will be an interactive forum for people who want to:

  • Present their ideas that will start a conversation with potential users, investors, purchasers and partners 
  • Attract first or secondary investment for their technologically driven products and services  
  • Experience why Guernsey is a jurisdiction of FinTech, digital and entrepreneurial invention.

FinVention 2016 will start at 08:30 on Tuesday 1 November and will comprise twenty to twenty five products that will be “demoed” throughout the day; a keynote speaker who will challenge conventional wisdom and thinking in the world of FinTech and FinVention; two opinion leaders who will encapsulate the highlights of the morning and afternoon’s sessions and a Happy Hour + of networking at the end of the afternoon.

The topical subject of Blockchain will be the focus of a one‐off FinVention workshop to be held at the Digital Greenhouse, Market Square, St Peter Port on the morning of Wednesday 2 November 2016.

FinVention 2016 on Tuesday 1 November 2016 is open to all to attend at the cost of £75.00 per ticket and includes breakfast, lunch and mid‐morning and mid‐afternoon refreshments. The products and services that are “demoed” will have exhibitor stands in the main conference hall so that delegates can have their own conversations with the originators of these progressive and technological and digital inventions.

“Guernsey is already known as a jurisdiction of excellence for its financial sector. FinVention 2016 is the island’s opportunity to enlighten and inform delegates, demo presenters, investors and purchasers of the wealth of digital technological creativity and entrepreneurialism that is resident in Guernsey and to get to know the people behind the great ideas.” said Deputy Andrea Dudley‐Owen, member of the Committee for Economic Development which is supporting this initiative.
