SETsquared has an impressive track record of helping start-up companies raise investment and finance and in the last 10 years, has helped over 1,000 companies raise £1 billion. SETsquared's investment support is based on preparing ventures for third-party investment though investor readiness training and the showcasing of new ventures at investor events.

Investor readiness

The investor readiness programme takes ventures through a range of activities - from business planning, investment strategy, sales and team development to the preparation of a hard-hitting executive summary and a compelling ‘elevator pitch'. It's a format that has been carefully honed over many years and is delivered by highly qualified staff - generally the 'entrepreneur in residence' at each centre, who is a seasoned entrepreneur with a wealth of business experience.

Investment events

SETsquared's annual Investment Showcase in London is a fantastic opportunity for investment ready start-up ventures to present their innovations to an audience of venture capitalists and angel investors. The event, aimed at raising investment for early-stage companies, can provide a vital step for businesses seeking to develop and commercialise ideas. Companies that have participated in the past 10 years have raised in excess of £120m.

SETsquared also holds investor events in Surrey through the Surrey 100 Club and an annual investor garden party at Bristol.  

All these events are invitation only. If you are an early-stage technology investor, please email us for more information on SETsquared's investment events.
