From start up only 13 years ago, SETsquared has supported over 1,000 hi-tech start-ups to develop and raise more than £1bn of investment, as well as contributing over £3.8bn to the UK economy with further £15bn contribution estimated over the next 10 years. The partnership currently supports 265 companies across its centres and has created over 9,000 new jobs.
SETsquared, which has risen from the No. 2 spot on the global list, was ranked alongside some of the world’s best university business incubators, including the Innovation Incubation Center at Chaoyang University of Technology, Taiwan and The DMZ (Digital Media Zone) at Ryerson University, Toronto.
“It’s incredible to be recognised as the top university incubator in the world, and we’re all delighted by the news. ‘Team SETsquared’ has worked extremely hard to fulfil our commitment to helping entrepreneurs and start-ups and this top ranking is a real testament to the skill of our staff and the success of the high-tech, high growth potential ventures we work with."
