Closure of Start-Up not good news for business

The CGI is very disappointed to learn that Start-Up Guernsey is to close and be replaced by a collection of separate organisations.

Over the past 20 years, Tony Brassell and his team at Start-Up have supported hundreds of local entrepreneurs and businesses establish and develop on the island and the CGi cannot see how four different groups can provide the same level of expertise and focus.

It is ironic that the States has decided to close a dedicated agency when it has established several over the past few years specialising in particular areas of business – Digital Greenhouse, Guernsey Finance, Locate Guernsey – as notable examples.
