SETSquared Bristol – Breakthrough Bursary – supporting BAME businesses

What is the Breakthrough Bursary?

SETsquared Bristol’s Breakthrough Bursary supports BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) entrepreneurs to grow their tech business with our bespoke business incubation programme.  

Our programme can help you get your product ready for market or grow your existing business, whilst retaining your existing company culture. 

The Bursary covers 75% of Startup Membership costs for up to 12 months. This equates to a cost of £37.50 + VAT per month for awardees to become members of SETsquared Bristol. The Bursary is kindly funded by our SETsquared alumni members. 

Applications for the next round of Breakthrough Bursary are open from 21 September to 8 November 2021. Successful applicants will be invited to commence membership from January 2022.
