Interactive Scientific

“Becoming a SETsquared member at this important time for Interactive Scientific has provided a rigorous framework to drive the business and me (as MD) to our next steps. We have received coaching that has enabled us to focus on the commercialisation of our technology and enabled us to turn our passion into a viable business proposition. SETsquared has also unlocked opportunities, networks and relationships that are helping us to launch.”

Becky Sage, Managing Director, Interactive Scientific

Yellow Dog

“YellowDog wouldn’t be where it is today without SETsquared Bristol. From opportunities to pitch to and meet investors, to guidance and support from the Entrepreneurs in Residence, access to a wide business support network, to the incredible location, and the peer support from the other folk building their businesses, SETsquared Bristol is an incredible place to start a business”

Gareth Williams, Founder, YellowDog


“A big thank you to SETsquared for supporting Red7 throughout its journey over the past 6 years, from inception in 2011 through to sale to Scientific Games in 2017. Being a CEO is a lonely place at times, and the entrepreneurs in residence were always there when I needed sage advice or a sounding board for my own ideas. The support team have also always been very professional, helpful and friendly. As they said on day one (11/11/2011), 'You take care of the business Matt and we'll look after everything else', and that's what we did for that vital first 12 months.”

Matt Hatch, CEO/founder of Red7Mobile


“SETsquared Bristol has been our home since the early days of the business. Not only have they provided a literal home, in the form of our first office space, but they’ve also provided everything else we all need from a home: support, advice, connections, guidance and training.”

Steve Cliffe, CEO, Ultrahaptics
