Founders’ Friday (27th July 2018)

After running two 5-day ‘Newcastle Startup Week‘ festivals for over 600 people in May 2017 and 2018, we’re also now hosting monthly Founders’ Friday events on the last Friday of every month.

The purpose of these events is to provide a regular home for new, existing & potential business startup founders in the North East to come together with members of the wider business community to share knowledge, gain feedback & support one another.

Taking place at the new Tuspark Eagle Lab co-working & event space on Grainger Street in Newcastle upon Tyne, the format for Friday 27th July was as follows:

9am-10am: Hot-desking / co-working (or all day if you like)

10am-11am: ‘Insights Briefing’ (short talks & presentations on opportunities in the Newcastle, North East & UK business community)

11am-12pm: ‘Startup Show & Tell’ (an opportunity for local startups to demo what they’re working on at the moment, ask for feedback & offers of support)

12pm-1pm: Lunch (sponsored by Sintons LLP)

1pm-3pm: Guest speakers, masterclasses, workshops & breakout sessions on a range of topics including sales, marketing, business development, funding, leadership, wellbeing, building a team & more
