C5 Alliance tech incubator expands for Genting

Friday 30 January 2015

C5 Alliance’s business and technology incubator has undergone refurbishments following its success hosting eGaming outfit Genting Alderney.

The company began using C5’s incubator service in February last year and has since expanded its operation, with further growth expected in the long term.

“When Genting initially arrived in Guernsey, sourcing premises that weren’t surplus to our current requirements but allowed us room to grow when necessary was a key priority,” said Gemma Greathead, Finance Manager at Genting Alderney. C5’s incubator offering is adaptive by nature and they were very willing to assist us in finding a perfect solution, producing plans for a serviced office suite that suited our aims as a company.”

C5 Alliance provided the company with a temporary workspace within Turing House in the Gibauderie while work was undertaken to improve and expand their dedicated office suite.

“As a global company we aim to provide high standard working environments for all staff and our new offices will contribute to both employee morale and recruitment. We have the added advantage of access to meeting rooms and commercial levels of bandwidth, all part of what makes C5’s offering ideal for businesses of our size,” said Miss Greathead.

Marc Lainé, managing director of C5 Alliance in Guernsey said Genting had been a great example of the technology incubator succeeding in its aims.

“We set out last year to provide serviced office space that reflected the real needs of small and growing businesses, particularly those in the digital space.
“Providing the right infrastructure and provisions for businesses establishing a presence locally or starting fresh is a worthy investment.

“We believe projects like our tech incubator can be extremely worthwhile for the local economy. To encourage businesses to grow we’ve set out to lower the entry barriers by offering essential infrastructure and connectivity without the high cost and long leases, along with managed services, advice and mentoring and even access to investment. It needs to be about meeting individual needs.

“Genting needed an improved space to grow their business, so we arranged it.”
