As its Startup Month here at TechSPARK we’ve picked five SETsquared Bath startups that we believe are ones to watch in 2022, but would be remiss if we didn’t highlight the other amazing startups who are a part of the SETsquared Bath community – so check out the full list of companies here.

The SETsquared Bath Innovation Centre is in the heart of the city near the main transport hubs. They offer workspace, business acceleration and inspiration for high-growth companies and the entrepreneurs that create them.

Causal Map is a new online research tool, a way to code, analyse and visualise fragments of information about what causes what. It can be used to make sense of what interviewees tell you in social science research, or to visualise stakeholders’ experiences of how a programme or intervention is working and create collective empirical ‘theories of change’.

Causal Map is designed to help you identify and highlight information about what causes what within the text, then use powerful filtering and queries to help you aggregate, visualise and present how your sources perceive change happens. You upload texts containing people’s views about what causes what. This could be interviews, emails, published documents, questionnaire answers to open questions.

Allowing you to do what no other software can: Causal Map enables you to code, organise, understand and present this information as a network or map.

Other qualitative research software is designed to tag and organise the themes and frequency of themes within these kinds of texts. Other kinds of specialist software can help you to construct and present information about a network. But how about being able to do both together?
