OVHcloud has partnered with global university business incubator SETsquared to offer its Startup Program benefits and cloud services to its member startups.
Since 2015, OVHcloud’s global Startup Program has received 7,000 applications and helped over 2,000 businesses with more than £5m in cloud credits and invaluable solution architecture support.
Startups supported by SETsquared can apply for membership of the OVHcloud Startup Program, and those successful have access to a wide variety of benefits, the company said.
These include a mentorship programme, faster tech support, membership events, networking and other visibility opportunities, access to market opportunities within OVHcloud’s customer and partner network, and personalised onboarding with social media shoutouts for new members.
“Our partnership with SETsquared will hugely benefit the UK’s thriving startup ecosystem, and we are proud to support the country’s greatest entrepreneurial talent,” said Philip Marais, startup program manager at OVHcloud.
“SETsquared consistently incubates high-quality startups that add economic and social value to the communities in which they operate. With the support of our cloud solutions, these startups can focus on building and delivering their vision.”
OVHcloud’s Startup Program is already supporting three of SETsquared’s UK startups, including 3finery, Omecu and Play Well for Life.
Simon Bond, innovation director at SETsquared said: “OVHcloud already provides world-class support to three of our incubated startups and this partnership will extend these benefits to many more of the enterprises we help develop.
“Both SETsquared and the OVHcloud Startup Program offer vital support to new businesses across diverse industries to help them succeed and grow. OVHcloud’s personalised approach really sets them apart, providing excellent networking and mentorship opportunities, solution architecture, social media support and more, which makes a real difference to the startups we support.”
OVHcloud’s partnership with SETsquared is now live, and applications for membership are open to young companies.
