Newcastle Startup Week

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


Newcastle Startup Week is a 5-day (& night) festival that inspires & helps hundreds of people to start or grow their business in the North East of England.

The North East isn’t just where we are based, it’s somewhere we think is the perfect home for anyone wanting to start or grow their business.

Our region is full of wonderfully warm & friendly people, a close knit & collaborative business community, boasts a high quality yet low cost of living, excellent colleges & 5 fantastic universities, great national & international transport links & a thriving tech, digital & creative sector.

If you have a business idea but don’t know how to start, are already in business but need advice or funding to keep going or taking things to the next level, Newcastle Startup Week is for you!

Both our 2017 & 2018 events attracted over 600 delegates from across the UK, Europe & the USA & we’re expecting our next one on 13-17 May 2019 to be even bigger (see schedule & book tickets here).
