SETsquared is a collaboration between the universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey which partners in enterprise activities and collectively supports the growth and success of new business opportunities through spin-outs, licensing and incubation. The Partnership also works with industry through research collaboration and consultancy.

The Partnership's universities:

  • generate quality 'spin-out' companies from university research discoveries.
  • support early-stage, high-growth science and technology companies from the universities' local communities, by providing entrepreneurs with business mentoring, routes to funding and industries, as well as affordable office space.
  • link established companies, with university experts and facilities to further their businesses.
  • provide students and staff with business skills

Technology Transfer

Technology Transfer professionals have fostered close working relationships with academics, bridging the gap between complex academic research, its commercial application and business creation. This has resulted in the flotation of six spin-out companies with a combined market capitalisation of over £250m.
