Newcastle Startup Week

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

Startup Week

Newcastle / North East 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 (with more across the North East of England due to be added in 2020).

Our 2017 & 2018 events both attracted over 600 delegates each from across the UK & around the world & in 2019 the number increased to 790 (see video below)!

Each day is themed as ‘Inspiration’, ‘Getting Started’, ‘Funding & Finance’, ‘Scaleup Summit’ & then ‘Keep Going or Pivot?’ providing the ultimate business bootcamp. By bringing everything together in one week, our ‘Impact Report 2019‘ shows people feel more inspired, motivated & positive about starting or growing a business in the North East of England after attending our events!
