Originally, this website was primarily focused on the annual 5-day Newcastle Startup Week festivals we ran in May 2017, 2018 & 2019 for 600, 600 & then 800 people respectively.

However, we believe EVERY week should be a Startup Week & so after running two online events in May & September 2020 for 300 & 300 people, in January 2021 we re-positioned it to be an all-year-round resource for anyone wanting to start or grow a business in Newcastle upon Tyne or the wider North East of England.

Since then, we’ve been publishing a wide range of free blogs, guides, videos & newsletters every week whilst continuing to grow the audience for all our digital channels across the region, wider UK & around the world.

Our current audience stats are:

  • 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 = 234 (& rising)
  • Members of our private Startup Week Community Facebook Group = 183 (& rising)
