They also met with Government officials to explain Google’s idea development process, with a specific focus on how digital solutions can support long-term efforts to meet the island's carbon neutral and sustainability objectives.
Digital Jersey CEO, Tony Moretta said: “We have built up a strong relationship with the Google team over several years and I was really pleased to welcome them to Jersey to meet with and talk to a broad cross section of people here – from students and government officials to tech entrepreneurs and finance leaders.
“That is one of the things that Digital Jersey does best – connecting people and giving them access to the digital tools, frameworks and knowledge that can help them realise their ambitions and ultimately help shape Jersey’s future by adopting a digital-first mindset.”
