In our digitally-driven global world, Nicola and I firmly believe it’s still local collaborations that make the biggest difference. So after winning the Bath Life Award for Technology and Innovation last night, it’s time to do what we didn’t have time to when stood on the podium – thank all our local partners past and present who have made not just this possible, but also the success we have had at the Bett Awards, Education Resource Awards, The Duke of York’s Pitch@Palace Awards, the Sparkies and the KPMG Best Mobile Start-Up Awards in the last year. So here’s to our local partners:
SETsquared (www.setsquared.co.uk) – we’re proud to be part of the Global #1 University Accelerator right here in Bath – any local start-up would be wise to apply to benefit from the mentoring and expertise they provide.
