Get your business fit for innovation, and ready for growth.

Fast paced and dynamic, this fully-funded workshop is designed for businesses which have a digital element to their products/services.

Brought to you at a time when many founders are adapting their business models to suit a changing and uncertain environment, this Innovation Workout will give you dedicated time with expert mentors to revisit and scrutinise your business model. It will give you the opportunity to consider different financial models, develop new and existing products as well as identify new revenue streams.

The outcome will be a developed business model with a greater potential for investment and growth.

You will have the opportunity to work with a researcher from one of SETsquared’s Scale-Up partner universities – Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey – which will give you a unique perspective into your business and an objective problem solving resource.

Check out the agenda

In addition, by taking part in this workshop you will become a member of our high-profile Scale-Up Programme. This will give you access to exclusive events, expertise in growing businesses and dedicated support to help you raise public and private investment.

Who should apply?

The Innovation Workout is tailored for registered businesses with at least 2/3 years of growth in digital, advanced engineering, sustainable and health sectors.

It’s very much a team sport and is most suited to teams of 2 – 3 from the same company. There is no requirement to be in the same room – the workshop will be organised so you can all collaborate virtually. There is also no requirement to purchase any new software, we’ll take care of the tech and logistics.

Earlier-stage start-ups should apply for the Entrepreneur’s Programme – next dates are 21, 22 & 25 September.

Applicants do not need to be associated with SETsquared’s university partners in any way.

Find out directly from a previous participant Mark Williams, CEO at Revoola, what value they got from the programme.

“SETsquared offers a significant financial springboard, with access to investment, industry linked pitching events like the Investment Showcase, and events like the Scale-up Innovation Workshop allow us to check and improve our business model. We have refined our idea a few times, workshops like this have facilitated this process.”

Mark Williams, CEO at Revoola

“The Innovation Workout course is visual and flexible. It was incredibly useful, enabling me to really focus on defining our value proposition and the potential markets”.
