SETsquared November Innovation Workout

By Ben Carey on 18 October, 2021

SETsquared’s next Innovation Workout takes place on Monday 8th and Tuesday 9th November.

Open to businesses throughout Swindon and Wiltshire, the Innovation Workout is a two-day online programme which will help you look at all aspects of your business to build a practical plan for future growth.

You will also get the opportunity to work with some highly experienced mentors who will provide you with invaluable feedback to take your business forwards.

The Workouts are currently offered on a fully funded basis to businesses in Swindon and Wiltshire.

Sam Dharmasiri, Chief Executive Officer of Swindon-based Seer 365, recently took part in the Innovation Workout. He said, “I would urge all business founders in Swindon and Wiltshire to take part in an Innovation Workout.

“A year ago, we started reshaping our business strategy. If we had taken part in the Workout at that point, I estimate I would have saved about two months of my time, which is significant. It was still extremely valuable for us to take part as it cemented some of the processes we’d been through and enabled us to benefit from different perspectives. It also helped us sharpen up and simplify our elevator pitch.”

The Workout helps businesses map out what they’re doing to find improvements, solve problems, explore opportunities to scale-up or uncover new areas for growth. It helps founders inject innovation and creativity to all aspects of the operations.

Andrea Kelly, Programme Manager, SETsquared, said, “Innovation is a word we hear more and more when it comes to business planning and strategy. It’s often associated with the creation of new technology, but that’s not always strictly the case.

“Business innovation can be as simple as implementing a new process, idea, service or product with the goal of boosting the bottom line. Simple, incremental changes can make a big difference to your revenue and growth, so all businesses can benefit from it.”

The Innovation Workout is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Swindon and Wiltshire Growth Hub.
