Since July 2018, we’ve been running our in-person Founders’ Friday events on the last day of each month as a way for self-employed freelancers, startup founders, micro business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs & students to come together in a fun, friendly & informal way to learn about the latest opportunities to start or grow a business in the North East of England.
(It’s also one of the best ways for business advisers, investors, funders & members of the public sector to get closer to pre-start & early stage business owners in the region).
Until COVID restrictions allow us to run physical events again, our Founders’ Friday events now take place inside our private Facebook Group. To watch them as they happen & join conversations with other Members of our Startup Week Community or speak at future events, you first need to join our Community which is just £75 for ‘Lifetime Membership‘!
In the meantime, here are some of the talks, presentations & interviews from our event on 28th May:
Want to speak at Founders’ Friday?
Our Founders’ Friday events take place on the last Friday of every month & we are always looking for guest speakers to share insights on the latest opportunities to start or grow a business in the North East of England, to give a Show & Tell about their new business, product or service, to take part in a Q&A interview or deliver a Masterclass on a topic that startups or small businesses would find interesting & useful.
Pr-recorded videos of talks / presentations are initially just shared inside our private Facebook Group for Members of our Startup Week Community to see first. The videos are then uploaded to our Newcastle Startup Week YouTube Channel & embedded into an ‘Event Recap’ blog (like this one) & the blog is shared across all our social media accounts (30,000+ followers) & included in our weekly newsletter (just under 3,000 subscribers) to it’s a fantastic way to raise your profile, amplify your reach & promote what you do to potential customers / clients!
We give priority to Members of the Startup Week Community so if you’d like to speak at one of our future Founders’ Friday events, please join our Startup Week Community which is just £75 for ‘Lifetime Membership‘!
