Global Technology Company joins Alumni group of Bristol SETsquared Centre

Global Technology Company joins Alumni group of Bristol SETsquared Centre

Test and Verification Solutions (TVS) have been welcomed into the prestigious “SETsquared Alumni” group of growing high-tech, high-growth businesses that have been supported by the Bristol SETsquared Centre. 

TVS joined the award-winning business incubator in March 2008 with just the founder, Dr. Mike Bartley, and the aspiration to create a global technology products and services business. 

The company now employs 80 people worldwide, with operations in Chennai, Delhi and Bangalore, in India, offices Germany, Grenoble in France and Sweden and Italy and expects to achieve over £2.5M in revenue this financial year. 

TVS provides specialist software test and hardware verification services and products for clients developing products for the semiconductor and embedded systems industries. By outsourcing to TVS, the client can focus on designing great products and not have to worry about building expertise for these complex QA activities. Bristol is the obvious headquarters location for this business given the globally significant concentration of semiconductor and related businesses within a 20 mile radius of the city. 

The Bristol SETsquared Centre now has more than 60 businesses that it is supporting including 16 members within the elite “Alumni” group – SETsquared supported businesses that have exited the Centre and continue exciting growth paths, including XMOS, DigitalTV Labs, Apitope and Imetrum. 

Dr. Mike Bartley Founder and CEO of TVS said, “SETsquared has given TVS great advice and help since we joined in 2008. As a technical specialist I needed guidance on how to grow a business and SETsquared has provided this. TVS is pleased to continue our relationship with SETsquared.” 

Nick Sturge, Centre Director of the SETsquared Centre in Bristol added “It has been a real pleasure working with Mike and the team at TVS over the last 5 years and supporting them in this aggressive global growth. We are delighted to welcome the business into our elite Alumni group.”
