Bristol-based Engine Shed, which is home to business incubator SETsquared Bristol, has launched the Investor-in-Residence service because raising finance, and getting early, safe feedback, is an important part of the Scale Up Ecosystem initiative that the organisation is working to strengthen. The appointments are open to any business, you just need to book them on the Engine Shed website.
Engine Shed Director Nick Sturge (pictured left) says: “We are delighted to launch this new service for businesses in Bristol and Bath. Talking with those who use our facility, the need for balanced, straight guidance about investment is critical to businesses whether they are at startup or scaling for growth stage.
“There is a wide range of investment opportunities in the marketplace and often businesses aren’t sure what they need, when and who to choose. Deepbridge and ADV are able to provide such expert advice and we know that this service will prove to be popular.”
“We are delighted to now have our first formal footprint in the South West at the leading home for tech in the region”

“With offices also in Chester, London and Edinburgh, we are delighted to now have our first formal footprint in the South West at the leading home for tech in the region – the Engine Shed. The South West, and Bristol in particular, is not only a hub for innovation but is also home to a rapidly growing community of financial advisers who appreciate the Deepbridge approach to providing innovative tax-efficient investment opportunities.”
