Continent 8 Technologies recently had the opportunity to host a series of events at our Gibraltar data centre, celebrating Benefit Business Solutions. Gibraltar Magazine provided coverage of these innovative summits.
GIBRALTAR MAGAZINE – As part of the 5th Anniversary celebration of Benefit Business Solutions, the Rock’s only Innovation Consultancy, a series of 5 events were held in which it was unveiled that a technology start-up accelerator will be set up in Gibraltar – ‘The Rocket Accelerator.’
The events were held at Continent 8’s highly secure Data Centre located in a tunnel inside the depth of the Rock, and attended by leading business executives and government representatives, including the new Minister for Business, Vijay Daryanani, and HE Governor of Gibraltar, as well as Continent 8’s Executive Director, David Black (who flew especially from Dublin) and General Manager in Gibraltar, Luis Garcia, who provided a tour of Continent 8’s impressive facility.
Drawing on the experience that Benefit Business Solutions’ directors have with the Israeli market – a country well known for being the ‘Innovation Nation’ and a place from where many technology start-ups have evolved, the Rocket Accelerator is being formed in partnership with Gold Ventures Incubator (GVI), a company which already operates two start-up incubators in the Tel Aviv area, and similar accelerator programs in 8 countries around the world, with their local partners.
