Santander have engaged with more than 2,000 entrepreneurs on campuses across the UK and received more entries than ever before for the 2019 awards. We’re so pleased to have two businesses representing the University of Bath in the group of 60 semi-finalists. With both Nia Simpson and Eoin Sharkey being 2018 Innovation Award winners and university alumni, it’s a real achievement and one that, we feel, is testament to the invaluable support that alumni donors and mentors, and the SETsquared Bath team, provide for these young people.

The semi-final is being held at Nottingham Trent University on Thursday 27th June and we wish both of our members the best of luck. Watch this space!
