"I'd never run a company before, and SETsquared was an environment where I could ask questions, meet people to help, and network."
"I attended an investor readiness course and went to events, including SETsquared's Investment Showcase. The events help prepare for investo pitching because you have the same sort of conversation again and again, and the practice is good. The course and the events helped me to secure investment."
"I took part in business review panels, where we took a business issue and discussed it with people who had the right sort of experience. It's like a board of directors as and when you need them."
"SETsquared has arranged for us to have student interns. This is a good way to find staff, and the first intern joined us as a full-time employee."
"Large companies have a finance department, a marketing department and so on, but small companies don't you're on your own. Whenever I needed someone in those areas, SETsquared found me a person to help."Christian Maul, CEO, RedLux
