Accelerator Directory / The SETsquared Partnership (SETsquared)

Business Description

"Established in 2003 and funded by the Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF), the SETsquared Partnership is the enterprise collaboration between five leading research-intensive universities: BATH, BRISTOL, EXETER, SOUTHAMPTON and SURREY. ...one of the richest areas in the UK in terms of GDP, the region is home to many leading research-based technology corporates, universities, public-sector research establishments and successful entrepreneurs.

[FT, Sept 2017: "In 2015, UBI Global, the Sweden-based research and advisory company, ranked SETSQUARED as the top university business incubator in the world. Since it was opened 13 years ago, SET has had more than 1,000 high-tech start-ups that have attracted more than £1bn of investment. Oxford university might have some 2000 research projects under way but only 21 became commercial ventures last year."]

....five Business Acceleration Centres, based on or near each of our partner universities campus’. ...support spin-outs from the universities' research bases and technology start-ups from the wider business community. 80% of the companies we incubate are from the external business world, 20% originate from within the universities. ... sectors including healthcare and pharmaceutical, IT, online, aerospace, defence and security, finance and telecoms...

Our Top 50 in 15 campaign, which will be launched on 29th March, is a celebration of the achievements of the top 50 entrepreneurs that we’ve supported plus 10 up and coming stars - ‘ones to watch’.
