Since joining SETsquared my business skills have developed significantly. I attended the Entrepreneurship training course just over 2 years ago with the mind-set that a product was a business, the mentoring, workshops and networking has taught me a huge amount about the issues that any entrepreneur needs to address to get a company off the ground and put me in a much better position to build a successful company.

The STC is the ideal place for us to do business. It provides us with a representative business address and office space at a very good location with its access to the A3, being close to the University and Guildford town centre. Our visitors / clients often complement the office space and the meeting rooms. Being at the heart / entrance of the research park, does allow us to easily connect with other exciting and relevant businesses that are placed here.
