SETsquared Bath member services


The SETsquared Partnership creates bespoke packages of support to help each member start-up company become a viable, profitable and thriving business. Support includes Business Review Panels, one to one mentoring and investor readiness training. Beyond the centre staff, members are supported by Entrepreneurs in Residence, mentors and in-residency professional services (legal, accounting, IP advice, marketing, investment). 


Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIR)

At the Bath SETsquared EiR's (Entrepreneurs in Residence) are professional business advisors who have started their own businesses, often a number of times, and raised finance. See the TEAM page for details of current EIR’s.



We highly value our mentor network. Mentors are experienced founders and business professionals who provide their expertise on a pro bono basis. A mentor will usually act as a coach and facilitator rather than a decision taker. Although, if the relationship works well, ventures may want to develop the mentor's role into a more formal management, board or advisory position.

For undergraduates and graduates we also have Laurence James and Grant Calvin, our Student Enterprise Mentors in Residence. Students and graduates involved in university enterprise activities can access support by requesting a session with Laurence or Grant. Please send us an email to schedule an appointment.
