Our Innovation Workout uses the Business Model Canvas as a tool to help companies build a detailed picture of their business model in order to identify new areas for growth and innovation. With the opportunity to work with highly experienced mentors, it’s an important step in getting your business into shape ready for investment and R&D.
Raising private investment
Finding investors that are the right for your business is essential. It’s likely to be a long relationship and you need to consider what else in terms of expertise and experience they are likely to bring to the table. Read our blog ‘It’s like a marriage’ to get an insight into the investor – company relationship.
Tailored specifically for scaling companies with an innovation agenda, our online investment toolkit, RAISE, knowledge sharing wikis and curated investor intelligence are invaluable resources to support your investment campaign.
Our strong network of investors has been built up over the last decade and through events, our SETsquared Investment Platform and direct introductions, we can help you make contact with investors with specific interest in your technology/sector and who have the right expertise as well as funds to take your business forwards.
We know that finding the right academic partner for your business can be difficult. That’s why we have dedicated Innovation Advisors at each of our partner universities (Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter, Southampton & Surrey) who can identify and introduce you to the appropriate expertise and team who could partner you on collaborative funding bids as well as the brightest and best upcoming talent in the PhD and early-career researcher communities.
We’re well tapped into upcoming funding opportunities under the following themes – digital, health, next generation transport, sustainability and quantum and can help advise which ones your business should target. You can also access events and resources to upskill and refresh on successful grant writing techniques.
Our enhanced package of support can also include funded services, such as:
Get insights into how cutting-edge technology and deep science are shaping sectors and solving global challenges as well as hear directly from funders and investors about upcoming opportunities and what they are looking for in investment prospects.
