SETsquared, the global no. 1 university business incubator operates programmes at two prime locations on either side of Exeter. The University of Exeter Innovation Centre, home to The Deck, driving entrepreneurship amongst University students and graduates on the Streatham campus. Exeter Science Park Centre, is a business park on the outskirts of the city for growing science and technology businesses.

These Centres provide an outstanding environment and a wealth of facilities and services, including access to leading edge knowledge and expertise.

SETsquared also supports high-tech start-up companies, providing student enterprise and enabling academics to maximise the impact of their research.

In the centres, dedicated business and technology support staff are available, providing business acceleration services to clients at all stages of development. Clients can also access Experts in Residence, business mentors, networks and a range of events, workshops and seminars.

The centres are the gateway to the University’s services and facilities for business. Last year, more than 500 projects were undertaken with business and £5.6m was generated by the University through its work with industry. More than 100 members of academic and technical staff have worked with a commercial partner during the past three years.
