“SETsquared Bristol gave me the XMOS founding team a home in their early days and provided multiple things we needed to grow and succeed. Free and reduced cost access to expensive specialist tools that would have been difficult to afford in early days were vital.
SETsquared Bristol is a truly conducive environment to incubate a small business, especially notable is their network, which was massively valuable when we started out and and has continued to be of benefit as an alumni member.”
