“It was a seamless transition every time we grew the team and moved into a larger office. We’re now in our third office space at SETsquared, and are about to take on a much larger space downstairs at Engine Shed. It’s also been great meeting other SETsquared members and getting peer-to-peer support.”

Emily Kent, One Big Circle Co-Founder and Director



“Engine Shed itself is a good location for SETsquared. The fact it is such a hub for the start-up and scale-up community in Bristol means that its location itself brings a lot to the value of working at SETsquared: the random collisions that you get between businesses and companies who either operate or pass through there on a daily basis. There was a diverse range of businesses that we worked alongside at Engine Shed but they mainly had a similar attitude to us, which was also motivating.”

Gareth Williams, YellowDog Founder and CEO
