SETsquared’s Swindon and Wiltshire programmes have supported more than 90 local organisations to innovate, grow, and develop their business. Don’t miss out on these final opportunities to take advantage of the support on offer. 

Since late 2019, we’ve helped businesses from across the board unlock the next phase in their journey. This fully funded package of support can help you to identify the best route to take your business to the next level. 

Our Innovation and Entrepreneurs Workouts take place online across two full days, addressing some the common challenges that businesses face in their journey, and helping you to overcome them. Working with a team of mentors, your experience will be tailored specifically to your company’s needs. Whether you’re a start-up entrepreneur needing support in setting prices for your product or service, or an innovator looking to explore gain new tools to aid in your business’ growth, there’s a workout that will suit you. 

If you’re wondering how these programmes can be offered completely free of charge, we understand. The Innovation and Entrepreneurs Workouts in Swindon and Wiltshire are funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). If these were to be charged to businesses, the cost of a place on the programme would be more than £2,000, so this is a fantastic final opportunity to receive the expert support on offer. 

The two pathways differ in their content. Our Entrepreneurs Workout is designed with early-stage businesses in mind. Focusing on the fundamentals of your business model, it allows you to explore subjects of value proposition, customer segmentation, and more, helping you to build the foundations for a strong and successful business. The Entrepreneurs Workout gives you an opportunity to map out your business model ready to take your product to market. 

The Innovation Workout is aimed towards those businesses that are more established, with an active customer base. You’ll scrutinise your business model from the top down, with a team of expert mentors who can help you to consider alternative financial models, product concepts and revenue streams, amongst other key topics. The outcome of the workout will be a clearly developed business model bursting with potential for future investment and growth. 

Still not sure? Hear from some of our previous participants about how they found their workout experience.

James Hill, Director at Fudge Animation Studios and former participant on our Entrepreneur’s Workout, said, “SETsquared’s Entrepreneur’s Workout was life changing. It was an incredibly valuable experience and I wish I’d had the opportunity to take part in a programme like this when I originally went into business 10 years ago.”

Alan Roan from Cervus Defence spoke highly of our Innovation Workout, saying, “For me, getting advice from these experienced people who’ve done it before was gold dust and I could have paid a fortune for that if the Innovation Workout hadn’t come along. I really enjoyed it because it was like a speed dating of ideas, it forced me to sit down and do tasks quickly”

Don’t miss out. Take advantage of these final workouts to unlock your company’s full potential.
