We are delighted to announce that our annual Tech Accelerator Program is open for candidate enrolment. The program is designed to support innovators and professionals with free legal advice and trust company services as they prepare to launch a company or fund.
We are encouraging start-up funds and emerging growth companies to apply to receive up to US$25,000 of combined legal fees from Harneys law firm and trust company services from Harneys Fiduciary. They will also be mentored by our expert lawyers and marketing team, who will help guide, support and refine the ideas of the successful candidate.
Joining us on the expert panel this year are: Philip Graham, Felice Swapp, Danielle Jerums, Ayana Hull, Joshua Mangeot, Myles Chingara, Marc Piano, and Hannah Perkins.
Partner Philip Graham commented: “The BVI market is incredibly active at the moment, with the Harneys team launching a record number of new fund vehicles, joint ventures and tech focused companies in the jurisdiction. The current dynamism can be attributed to a wide variety of global macro factors, but the huge boom of digital assets/blockchain and the ESG sector in 2021 has seen some incredibly innovative projects launching from our desks.”
We are looking forward to hearing from the latest and greatest tech innovators and professionals as they prepare to launch their company or fund. Interested candidates can apply by filling out a simple form, outlining key details of their business idea. Applications will be accepted up until 31 December 2021, after which a shortlist will be announced in early 2022.
