Applicant Criteria: SETsquared Invest 2021

  • Applicants are eligible if they are members of one of our SETsquared Business Acceleration Centres in Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey, are a spinout from or are being supported by one of the SETsquared partner universities.
  • All applicants must be able to demonstrate rigorous market validation, a strong and viable business model and the potential for continued growth and development.
  • Applications are welcomed where the company is looking to raise growth investment. The range of investment sought must be between £250k and £5m.
  • Unfortunately we cannot accept applications from companies that took part in SETsquared Invest 2020 or GradInvest 2021.

Investment Success

Many of the companies involved in previous showcases that were seeking investment for development and growth have been successful or are in negotiations to secure funds. Some companies, on reflection, felt that growth through previously established revenue streams was more appropriate. Others concentrated on gaining initial customer orders to strengthen their value to investors before formally approaching this community. Figures show that the total raised by companies who have participated in the event over the previous seventeen years exceeds over £120m.
