Newcastle Startup Week is an annual five-day (and night) festival that takes place in multiple venues across Newcastle and Gateshead in May. Each day has a different theme covering ‘Inspiration’, ‘Getting Started’, ‘Funding & Finance’, ‘Scaleup’ and ‘Keep Going or Pivot?’ By bringing all the best help and advice in one place, research shows we’re inspiring, motivating, encouraging and supporting more people to start or grow their business in the North East. Our 2017 and 2018 events both attracted more than 600 delegates from across the UK, Europe, USA and Asia and this year we’re on target to make our third event on May 13-17 even bigger.
Newcastle Startup Week festival is designed to inspire and encourage more local people to start and grow their own businesses and attract others from outside the region who might like to relocate, invest or do business here.
