We are pleased to announce that our research project into Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) diversity and inclusion in partnership with ACH and funded by SETsquared Bristol has been officially published today.
The report highlighted the need for increased engagement between the tech sector and Bristol’s diverse local business communities.
The research report was conducted by ACH and Up Our Street with the aim to improve and increase the inclusion and representation of BAME people within SETsquared’s tech incubator.
As a result of the research recommendations SETsquared Bristol are planning to:
- Partner with local community organisations in order to headhunt new talented mentors and experts
- Host the popular SETsquared Idea2Pitch event, which develops business ideas into a pitch, in community venues
- Launch a bursary scheme to subsidise the cost of SETsquared membership for gifted entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds
- Create an inclusive marketing strategy to implement citywide
