About the Workshops

An exciting opportunity for businesses in the Swindon and Wiltshire area is coming soon!

Fast paced and dynamic, these fully-funded programmes are designed for founders of digital businesses. Running in the Swindon and Wiltshire area, the programme will consist of Start-up Entrepreneur Workshops and Scale-up Innovation Workshops to offer support for all stages of digital businesses.

In the Start-Up Entrepreneur Workshop, you’ll deep dive into your business model, value proposition, customer segmentation, channels for winning customers and revenue model, helping you to build a strong foundation for profitable and successful business. It’s designed to be very practical and hands on and you’ll be putting theory into practice on your own business as well as other established business models.

The Scale-Up Innovation Workshop will provide you with the opportunity to explore where your current business model can be developed and refined to accelerate growth. Participants will review their current business environment, customers’ needs and assess opportunities to develop strategies with academic support as part of the SETsquared Scale-Up programme. The outcome will be a developed business model with a greater potential for investment and growth.

The programme is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

SETsquared’s Entrepreneurship Programme was life changing. It was an incredibly valuable experience and I wish I’d had the opportunity to take part in a programme like this when I originally went into business 10 years ago.

The Entrepreneur’s Programme was really valuable in helping us define the next steps for our business. The programme leaders were excellent and gave invaluable advice and feedback.

Jeremie Charlet, CTO & Co-founder, Trackener

It only takes you out of the office for two days and it’s really, really informative. I went along not knowing what to expect but it re-adjusted my thinking to focus on the pain points of my customer, in order to hone the product offering and tighten up my marketing messages. It can also lead to fully funded business support with SETsquared for 12-months.

“The innovation workshop allowed us to delve into how the business works, assisted our understanding of the business development process and highlighted how market research is crucial when developing new ideas. Working with an expert and academic on the day gave a fresh perspective to our business mindset and assisted the analytic process required to produce the Business Model Canvas.”

Beth Wright, Business Development and Marketing Assistant at TCarta
