We offer different membership levels designed to match the stage, trajectory and needs of the business.

During the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve made the move to deliver all our SETsquared Bristol business support services to online delivery. This provides the same level of service and an increased level of access through online channels including a suite of video conferencing tools.

As a member of SETsquared Bristol, you’ll benefit from the experience and learning of over 1,000 early stage businesses to help guide you as you meet your business milestones.
