giving access to exclusive events, expertise in growing businesses and
dedicated support to help raise public and private investment.
Innovation Workout is open to registered businesses in digital, health,
sustainable or advanced engineering sectors with several years of growth.
Brooks, Programme Director at SETsquared, said,“The Innovation Workouts are an
invaluable opportunity for growing businesses to take a step back and be
challenged on all aspects of their business. Through our Business Model Canvas
exercise we can help businesses define and shape their strategy ready for
investment. I would encourage any growing business to apply.”
Todd, CEO and Founder at Famiio took part in the Workout earlier this year and
is already making changes to his business approach.
said, “The way the team from SETsquared positively and productively challenged
us was a big differentiator. They made a genuine effort to understand our
world. Going forward that’s meant that we feel better equipped to ‘sell’ our
business model to potential funders, investors and customers.”
participant, Mark Williams, CEO at Revoola, added, “SETsquared offers a
significant financial springboard with access to investment, industry linked
pitching events like the Investment Showcase, and events like the Scale-up
Innovation Workshop. We have refined our idea a few times, workshops like this
have facilitated this process.”
The programme is part-funded by the European
Regional Development Fund.
