We’re delighted to announce a new collaboration with Digital Greenhouse and the Committee for Economic Development to launch a Barclays Eagle Lab in Guernsey, which will help entrepreneurs, businesses and the local community to create, innovate and grow.
Opening on 29 June 2018, our new Eagle Lab will be based in Market Square at the Digital Greenhouse and will offer individuals, local businesses, community groups and schools a collaborative working space. Clients and guests will be invited to join Karen Frank, CEO, Private Bank & Overseas Services, and Gavin St Pier, Chief Minister of Guernsey, for the official opening on 29 June 2018. This event marks Barclays’ 17th Eagle Lab, and a significant milestone as we complete the rollout to our offshore locations (Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man).
In preparation for the launch of our new Guernsey Eagle Lab, we’re pleased to welcome Gez Overstall, Ecosystem Manager, who brings a wealth of technology experience having joined Barclays from Infrasoft Technologies earlier this year. In his new role, Gez will work with island businesses, entrepreneurs and mentors during their scale-up journey, as well as members of the public and community groups as they seek to improve their digital skills.
The signing of this new partnership is a real game changer and is other great example of us working together with our clients, colleagues and stakeholders to add real societal value both now and for the future.
