Engine Shed hosts two ‘In Residence’ services to help entrepreneurs and leaders access information which will help them unlock their growth. The two services run by Engine Shed are:

  1. Investor in Residence

  2. Property Adviser in Residence and Invest Bristol & Bath

+ Investor in Residence

The Investor in Residence service is facilitated by Engine Shed and designed to help increase investment activity in the region, whether by improving a company’s pitch quality or raising awareness of investment propositions.

Click the links below to select the investor that you would like to meet and book a session with. Sessions last 30-45 minutes. At each session you can access expert advice and feedback on your pitch. This is not a pitch for investment – though if the investor wants to invest, we’re not going to stop them. This means that the session will be relevant to any stage or sector of company.

The Science Research Foundation (trading as Engine Shed) is not regulated and takes no responsibility for any advice provided as part of this service.
