On 22 February 2018, SETsquared was ranked as the World’s Top Business Incubator – Managed by a University.

The independent ranking, by UBI Global, has confirmed SETsquared’s pre-eminence as ‘number one’ in its field, having maintained its world-leading position since 2015.

From start up in 2002, SETsquared has supported over 3,500 hi-tech start-ups to develop and raise more than £1.5bn of investment, as well as contributing over £8.6bn to the UK economy.

“The SETsquared Partnership has not only helped nurture and grow British technology businesses, but it has also contributed nearly £9 billion to the UK economy which is an incredible achievement. Being recognised as the world’s leading business incubator is fantastic news and testament to the hard work and dedication of the team at SETsquared and the universities they work with.

“Through our modern Industrial Strategy, we’re calling on businesses to invest in the latest technology trends, and through our Sector Deals and Grand Challenges, we want the UK to be at the forefront of the technology revolution and make Britain fit for the future.”

Greg Clark MP, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
