By laura collacott, Tuesday Jan 31, 2017

Oracle launched a Bristol chapter of its Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator (OSCA) to deliver a structured acceleration programme to group of high growth companies. Working in partnership with SETsquared, global no.1 university business incubator, the tech giant will be based at Engine Shed to provide world-class facilities to selected start-ups. Oracle Senior Vice President of Product Development Reggie Bradford, a serial entrepreneur himself, will lead the program expansion.

Similar programmes have already been launched in Bangalore and Tel Aviv.

“We are thrilled to be working with Oracle on the Startup Cloud Accelerator,” said SETsquared centre director Monika Radclyffe. “We have had a very positive feedback from startups already working with Oracle teams and we look forward to seeing more success stories emerging from OSCA.”
