[email protected] On Tour to visit SETsquared Bristol

Tech start-ups in Southern England have the opportunity to apply to showcase their businesses in Bristol.

SETsquared, the partnership between the universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey, has collaborated with The Duke of York’s [email protected] initiative since its formation and will host a ‘venture pitch and selection’ event at SETquared’s Engine Shed on 14 September.

The event will give entrepreneurs and start-ups operating in the Internet of Things and Smart Cities sectors a chance to be selected to attend [email protected] 4.0 in London, where potential outcomes include investment offers, promotion opportunities and new customers or partners.

Simon Bond, innovation director for SETsquared, said: “[email protected] On Tour is a fantastic opportunity for entrepreneurs developing products and services for the Internet of Things and Smart Cities fields, and we know first hand that there are many exciting new businesses in the region that would really benefit from this exposure.

“We’ve seen SETsquared members Fourth State Medicine, PixelPin, Neighbourly and Industrial Phycology all take part in previous years and had great results from the event. Holding a selection event in the region means we have a far better chance of showing off developments from Southern England in front of the ‘A’ list of investors, movers and shakers.”

The Roadshow event in Bristol is one of only three regional rounds held around the UK. The city was chosen as a destination due to its status as the country’s only fast-growing, globally significant tech cluster.

Three of the ventures selected in Bristol will get to attend [email protected] 4.0 in London on 2 November and entrepreneurs don’t need to be SETsquared members to apply.

The application deadline is Friday 28 August and entrepreneurs can apply here:
