Healthcare innovators have the power to improve and save lives by developing products such as prosthetic limbs and wearables for conditions such as respiratory attacks and hip fractures.

Bristol’s Engine Shed and SETsquared incubator are walking the talk - and scaling up!

1stMar 2017

Following the publication of the review of its first three years, and the submission of the planning application for Engine Shed 2, the Engine Shed team are recruiting to scale up its own activities.

Engine Shed, the collaboration between Bristol City Council and the University of Bristol hosts, among other things, the global no. 1 business incubator, SETsquared.

It also now qualifies, according to the definition used by the UK’s Scale Up Institute, as a “Scale Up Company”, having more than 10 employees and growing by at least 20% per year, for three years or more.
