WORLD LEADING BUSINESS SUPPORT

INSIGHTS /

IoTUK Boost Bristol companies announced!

The emerging Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and businesses are estimated to be worth £322bn to the UK economy alone by 2020. The national IoTUK Boost programme from the Digital Catapult and Future Cities Catapult is designed to support the development of IoT enabled products, services, and applications from UK small to medium sized companies and entrepreneurs. High Tech Bristol and Bath CIC, together with Engine Shed, SETsquared Bristol, and the University of the West of England, Bristol have come together to deliver this support locally.

A key part of this support is working with innovative Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SME) to boost their entrepreneurial ideas. We held a successful technical day as part of Voxxed Days Bristol (2 March 2017), and followed this with a day on developing a proposition and improving your pitching (3 March 2017). This culminated in companies pitching their ideas for IoTUK Boost support.

The full process included an online formal application to SETsquared Bristol and an interview with SETSquared Bristol and the University of the West of England, Bristol.

SETsquared has been recognised as the global leader in delivering university-led business incubation. The benefits on offer to IoTUK Boost companies include:

  • coaching – two experienced Entrepreneur in Residence specialising in technology-focused business development
  • mentoring – SMEs will be able to choose a mentor from our network who is a right fit for their business
  • advisor in residence clinics (professional service firms and services)
  • extensive workshop programme
  • investor readiness training
  • events (including investment showcase)
  • business review panels
  • supportive community
  • representation on website
  • access to our extended community and global network (investors and corporates)
  • reception service
  • access to Engine Shed Business Lounge

The successful companies that will now benefit from the above are (alphabetically):
