Entrepreneurs have the chance to hone their business ideas at SETsquared, and gain interest and support to develop their technology ventures.

The #Idea2Pitch event includes an interactive workshop on what makes good business ideas, and training on how to pitch for maximum effect. Following the session is the Bristol Centre’s regular Beer ‘n’ Pizza networking evening, offering an opportunity to meet mentors informally in the start-up community.

SETsquared is a partnership between the universities of Bristol, Bath, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey, specialising in growing high-tech start-ups.

Director Monika Radclyffe said: “This is an invaluable opportunity for anyone considering setting up a technology venture. We have 65 businesses in the Bristol SETsquared incubator and they all started with just an idea.

“It is much easier to scale if you have guidance and a support network around you. This is exactly what we can offer to the local ecosystem.”

Greville Commins, business mentor and Entrepreneur in Residence at SETsquared Bristol, said: “All early-stage entrepreneurs need to road test their ideas before committing to their start-up. Knowing what makes a good business idea and how to communicate it effectively so that the ‘Ah Ha!’ moment comes quickly is crucial.”

The event takes place on 19 October and is open to non-SETsquared members and anyone thinking of setting up or developing their technology business. Book to attend via application or contact SETsquared reception for more information.
