SETsquared alongside the Wessex Academic Health Science Network is committed to providing comprehensive business support to healthcare and life sciences start-ups throughout their lifecycle.

The programme of support begins with the Health Innovation Programme. This is an immersive and interactive 3-day training course where you will develop your business idea, analyse your market and potential customers, develop a compelling pitch and look at funding strategies. It culminates with the opportunity to pitch to a panel of investors and healthcare experts, who will provide invaluable feedback for you to take your business forward. Participation in this event is free of charge and supported by the AHSN.

The programme includes sessions on how to write a great business plan, understanding your marketplace, getting to grips with company valuations, funding sources, and how to pitch for investment.
This is a personal skills development course that aims to enable individuals to take well-formed innovative proposals to business realisation.
You will have the opportunity to learn core skills in entrepreneurship and develop skills in the areas of: 
  • Customer analysis
  • Building a business case
  • Funding strategies
  • Market analysis

The course will provide:

  • an opportunity to make a compelling pitch to an experienced panel
  • a great way to network with like-minded innovators
  • friendly environment to try-out your ideas
  • a chance to get continuing support from us to further develop your proposition
Places on the course for entrepreneurs are sponsored by the Wessex Academic Health Science Network - however they are limited and application selection will be on a competitive basis.
