Basingstoke has a fast-growing digital business community with a reputation for housing companies developing new technology or evolving existing software and hardware.
The SETsquared Partnership helps develop budding entrepreneurs, runs the Google Development Group and facilitates the development of the 5G emulator. This centre at Basing View provides space and support for early-stage, high-growth potential technology ventures.
Basingstoke start-ups are benefiting from access to the University of Surrey’s ground-breaking 5G test bed and emulator for next generation mobile and communications software. The Basingstoke Incubation Hub is the first recipient of such a facility and was installed in the first quarter of 2016.
The official Google Developer Group for Hampshire and Surrey, is operated by SETsquared from the Innovation Centre on Basing View.
