The aim of Bridge is to promote entrepreneurship in the Isle of Man and encourage investment into local high growth companies supporting the Isle of Man Government Enterprise Development Scheme. Bridge will support early stage businesses in many ways, from organising networking events with the investment community, to connecting them with incubator space and to organising experienced mentors. The entrepreneurs also get free access to the knowledge and experience of the sponsors and other local supporting organisations to ensure the island’s success as a high growth company, FinTech and IT hub.
Bridge will host regular invitation-only networking events for a select relevant audience who can meet with high profile guest speakers, network with likeminded investors, and see pitches from local entrepreneurs and start-ups considering re-domiciliation. The sponsors will also be working with ‘Spark Impact’, the appointed manager of the £50m Isle of Man Government Enterprise Development Scheme.
