SETsquared now has two prime locations on either side of Exeter: the University of Exeter Innovation Centre on the Streatham campus and the Exeter Science Park Centre respectively, providing 3440 m2 and 1750 m2 of office and laboratory space.

These centres provide an outstanding environment, a wealth of facilities and services, including a conference centre and cafe, and access to leading-edge knowledge and expertise.

We have a diverse group of clients – from the public and private sectors, from start-up to mature companies – benefitting from offices and laboratories, hot desks or virtual services.

Our clients can access in-house business and technology support services. The Centres are part of the SETsquared Partnership – the global no. 1 university business incubator supporting high tech start-up companies, providing student enterprise and enabling academics to maximise the impact of their research.

“It’s been an exciting year for SETsquared in the South West, we’ve just moved into the new Exeter Science Park and are building on our experience and success at our home at the University of Exeter Innovation Centre.”  Robin Jackson, centre director, Exeter SETsquared Centre
