Newcastle Startup Week

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

Why Newcastle?

From the world’s first lightbulb to business software and smart data, the ‘test bed city’ of Newcastle upon Tyne, England has been inventing the future for hundreds of years.

It’s also a stunningly beautiful city with wonderfully warm and friendly people, a high quality yet low cost of living, five universities nearby, great transport links and a thriving digital / creative sector.

If you have a business idea but don’t know how to start, have already launched but need advice or funding to keep going, or want help taking it to the next level, our 5-day, citywide festival is for you!

Our Newcastle Startup Week festivals in 2017 and 2018 both attracted over 600 delegates across the week and our next event is on 13-17 May 2017 (see schedule & book tickets here).
