Make your business idea a reality with SETsquared

Entrepreneurs from the South are invited to take part in a three-day course to turn their ideas into business success.

SETsquared, the world’s number one university business incubator, is running its three day entrepreneurship programme at the University of Southampton Science Park.

Specifically designed for high-tech start-up ventures, the programme, from 7 to 9 March, will combine sessions led by experienced entrepreneurs and investors with lectures and small group workshops. The aim is to equip delegates with contacts and the confidence to optimise their business success.

On the agenda are modules ranging from market analysis to the anatomy of a business plan and funding strategies for start-ups.

After three days of intense training, the delegates will have the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to a panel of investors and receive real-time feedback on their plans.

Simon Bond, innovation director at SETsquared, said: “We are delighted to bring the highly successful entrepreneurship programme to Southampton. There is a lot of entrepreneurial talent in this area which we are keen to help develop and turn into real business propositions.

“Businesses that have already taken part in SETsquared’s entrepreneurship programme at other innovation centres have gone from strength to strength.

“This is an invaluable opportunity for high-tech start-ups in the South to take guidance from the world’s best university business incubator, and then put the three days of training into action immediately in front of investors. We can expect great things from those who take part.”

Tom Dewhurst from start-up Ordable, a previous participant on the entrepreneurship programme, said: “The programme has been really inspirational. As a business we’re preparing for our next round of investment, so the course has been very useful for fine-tuning our investment proposition.”
