SETsquared is a collaborative enterprise between 5 leading research-lead universities – Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey. The partnership acts as a focus for enterprise and incubation for new business creation within emerging technologies. Operating business acceleration centres on each campus, they provide mentoring and advice to develop viable start-up businesses. Each year they hold an investment showcase in London, attracting investors, venture capitalists, business angels and high net worth individuals, with an eye to raising capital for the most promising selection of start-ups under their collective wing.
Lunatrix’s involvement with SETsquared comes through our past design work with The University of Bath and The Innovation Centre, which we’ve been assisting with design work for many years and is the Bath incubation centre for new start up businesses. Along with various marketing leaflets we’ve designed for functions and events, Lunatrix have been responsible each year for getting the 20 start-up companies ready for the annual investor event, which involves designing and producing a set of 3 A2 size gloss laminated, mounted posters for each company, somewhat of a logistical miracle at times but we’ve managed to get everything ready in time each year. For the 10th anniversary of SETsquared, a special investor event was organised to out line the impact of university research – Changing Worlds as the event was called was attended by many high profile business leaders and members of parliament and a special commemorative brochure and presentation folder was designed by Lunatrix which can be seen in digital form in the link below.
