SETsquared in Bristol
SETsquared's Bristol Centre is in the city centre, close to the university's faculty of engineering, department of computer science and other leading university departments.
Research is at the heart of the University of Bristol's mission and is the reason behind its international reputation. In the latest independent Research Assessment Exercise (2001), 78 per cent of Bristol's departments were judged to be world-class or internationally excellent.
In 2008, the SETsquared Bristol Centre won the UKBI "Established Business Incubator of the Year" award, and in 3 years to 2011, helped it's member ventures raise some £57m of debt, grant and equity funding.
The SETsquared Centre offers quality office space with desk-stations, reception services, meeting rooms, air conditioned offices, a wireless LAN and a video conference facility.
The facilities are split across two locations - approximately 50 metres apart:
- 93-95 Woodland Road contains 10 desk-stations in SETsquared's shared 'pre-incubation' space plus 30 pre-incubation grow-on desks in 9 separate rooms (each of 2-4 desks)
- University Gate East contains the main reception and 44 incubation desks in 12 rooms (each of 2-8 desks)
There are kitchen facilities and two meeting rooms at each of the two sites, and limited secure car parking is available for University Gate East, at a cost.
The Bristol centre is well established to support, as well as early-stage companies, later-stage companies of 5+ people or corporate spinouts, who can benefit from our high quality support environment and University links.
