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 that takes place in multiple venues across Newcastle upon Tyne & Gateshead in the North East of England.

Our aim is to inspire, motivate, encourage & help more people & businesses to ‘Start Something New’ with each day themed as follows:

Day 1 (‘Inspiration’)
Day 2 (‘Getting Started’)
Day 3 (‘Funding & Finance’)
Day 4 (‘Scaleup Summit’)
Day 5 (‘Keep Going or Pivot?’)

Our 2017 & 2018 events both attracted just over 600 delegates & in 2019 this increased to just over 800. Our next event was due to take place on 18-22 May 2020 with an expected audience of 1,000 but due to global Coronavirus concerns we have decided to reschedule this for 21-25 September 2020.

In the meantime, we are also planning to produce & share a range of blogs, videos, webinars & podcasts during the original dates of 18-22 May via our ‘Startup Week Community’ Facebook Group.

To access this content & be a member of the Facebook Group, you will need to purchase either an ‘Online / Livestream ONLY’ ticket or one of the other ticket types listed on our ‘Tickets’ page.
