SETsquared Partnership 

Key sponsor and partner for Tech Swindon community development 


Here at SETsquared our mission is to help tech-based businesses grow and raise investment.

We’re the enterprise partnership between the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey and since 2002, we’ve worked with 4000+ companies, helping them raise over £1.8bn investment.

From an entrepreneur with an idea to a scaling tech company, our specialist programmes are designed to support founders and businesses whatever stage they are at.

In recognition of the huge tech and entrepreneurial talent in Swindon, we’re currently running a programme of business support to help accelerate the growth of innovative companies in the region.

Funded by the European Regional Development Fund and therefore free for you to take part in, our online Innovation Workouts, will get your business fit for innovation and growth.

Designed for innovative digital, sustainable, health or advanced engineering based scaling companies (eg with 2/3 year growth at least already under your belt) the workout will help you identify new areas of growth, better position and differentiate your products and services and identify opportunities for R&D funding and investment.

What is more, by taking part you will become a member of our Scale-Up Programme which will open up avenues to access further dedicated support to bid for public funding and raise private investment.

If you’re at an earlier stage with your venture, our Entrepreneur’s Programme would be a better fit. This is for digital start-ups and will help you deep dive into your business model, value proposition, customer segmentation, channels for winning customers and revenue model, helping you to build a strong foundation for a profitable and successful business.
