Urbino Rodrigues and Juliano Karahassan have won the Digital Jersey Hub Competition

Both winners will receive a year’s small-business membership and a workspace at the Digital Jersey Hub, allowing them to build and grow their business.

The winning entrepreneurs will be able to take advantage of all the facilities available to members, including a dedicated desk space. They’ll also receive financial mentoring from the team at NatWest International.

Entrants to the competition were asked to submit a two-page business plan. Short-listed entrants were then interviewed by a panel of judges before the winners were selected.

Joe Vasey, head of business and premier banking at NatWest International, said: ‘Here at NatWest International, we’re proud to support local businesses and entrepreneurs and are excited to sponsor the Hub Competition at Digital Jersey following its success in 2017.

‘Congratulations to Urbino and Juliano – we’re looking forward to working with you both over the next year to help your businesses grow and develop.’
