Originally, this website was primarily focused on the annual 5-day Newcastle Startup Week festivals we ran in 2017, 2018 & 2019 for 800+ people.

When COVID hit in 2020, we launched our online Startup Week Community & ran two 5-day Startup Week ONLINE events in May & September 2020 for 300 & 200 people respectively. (Since May 2020 we’ve been providing daily business advice & support through our private Facebook Group & 1-2-1 mentoring / coaching for Members).

We believe EVERY week should be a Startup Week so we’re also now publishing weekly blogs & videos to help more people start or grow a business in Newcastle, Gateshead & the wider North East of England whilst continuing to grow the audience for all our digital channels across the region, wider UK & around the world.

Key stats for Q1 2021 include:

  • Social Media audience (across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn & Instagram) = 30,000+
  • Email newsletter subscribers = just under 3,000
  • Average video interview views (across Linkedin, Twitter & YouTube) = 500-1,000
  • Subscribers to our YouTube Channel = 227 (& rising)
