We run our own events to help grow the business startup & scaleup community in the North East of England & regularly speak at or attend others to help share knowledge & insight about how to start or grow a business in the UK.

Our events:

Newcastle Startup Week

Launched in 2017, Newcastle Startup Week is an annual, 5-day (& night), multi-venue festival in Newcastle & Gateshead that inspires & helps more people to start or grow their business in the North East of England. Attracting over 600 delegates in both 2017 & 2018, then 800 in 2019, each day covers a different theme of ‘Inspiration’, ‘Getting Started’, ‘Funding & Finance’, Growing & Scaling’ & then ‘Keep Going or Pivot?’ Our next one is on 18-22 May 2020.

Founders’ Friday

To keep the momentum going all year round, our Founders’ Friday events take place on the last Friday of every month. Launched in July 2018, the purpose of these events is to give the North East startup community a regular place to come together with members of the wider business world, a platform for new startups and a place where people can learn about the latest opportunities in Newcastle, the North East & across the UK.
