Celebrating 10 years, 1,000 companies with a 90% survival rate and £1 billion investment raised.
In 2013, the SETsquared Partnership celebrated its 10th Anniversary. Over this time, we have incubated in excess 1,000 technology companies who have attracted around £1 billion of investment and created a significant number of high-tech jobs and are therefore rightly proud of the contribution we’ve helped make to UK economic growth.
“I can’t see why anyone would want to start a high tech business without the services of SETsquared. Most importantly, there’s the credibility of saying you’re a SETsquared company and the access to so many valuable contacts, as well as high quality advice. Then there are also fantastic facilities on tap and good value accommodation.”
Peter Lilley, Co-founder and CEO, iGeolise (members of SETsquared Surrey)
SETsquared hosted a one-off celebratory event on 27th November at Church House Conference Centre, Westminster.
The event incorporated the annual Investment Showcase, at which 21 up and coming companies were seeking investment, alongside an exhibition of our star alumni companies who have grown into successful global organisations, some social enterprises companies as well as some very early-stage emerging technologies which are set to be the next big thing.
The event also incorporated an expert panel who debated: 'what support should be in place to ensure our tech start-up community become the giants of the future?'.
