SETsquared Bristol provides a dynamic, modern, and supportive environment to grow your high-tech business. Launched in 2002 by the University of Bristol, and based at Engine Shed, we are currently supporting over 80 innovative ventures.

All high-tech businesses can benefit from our high quality support environment, guidance on business growth, and strong links to university expertise, whether you are from the private sector or a university spinout.

SETsquared is the global #1 University Business Incubator - a long standing enterprise partnership between the universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton, and Surrey, which specialises in growing high-tech start-ups through its world class business incubation programme.


For Interactive Scientific, being part of SETsquared Bristol has meant being part of a thriving  community, with people championing each other, making connections and being supportive. It gives both me and  iSci a platform with gravitas; otherwise we are a small face in the big crowd.
