Newcastle Startup Week

a 5 day festival to help you start or grow your business in the North East of England

Startup Week

Newcastle Startup Week is an annual 5 day (& night) festival for entrepreneurs & business leaders that takes place in multiple venues across Newcastle upon Tyne & Gateshead in May.

Our 2017 & 2018 events both attracted over 600 delegates from across the UK & around the world & in 2019 the number increased to 800 (see video below)! Our next event will be on 18-22 May 2020.

With each day themed as ‘Inspiration’, ‘Getting Started’, ‘Funding & Finance’, ‘Scaleup Summit’ & then ‘Keep Going or Pivot?’ – Newcastle Startup Week is the ultimate entrepreneurial experience!

Our ‘Impact Report 2019‘ explains how people feel more inspired, motivated & positive about starting or growing a business in the North East of England after attending our events.
