Impact Report 2019

Now in its’ third year, Newcastle Startup Week is an annual five-day (and night) festival that takes place in multiple venues across Newcastle and Gateshead in May.

Our 2017 and 2018 events both attracted more than 600 delegates each from across the UK, Europe, USA and Asia and at the time of writing, our third event on May 13-17 2019 will be even bigger!

Although we have many examples of how the event has helped people start or grow a business or project, we wanted to get a better understanding of what meaningful impact it has had on people, businesses, the city and region. To do this, we worked with the Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies (CURDS) through Newcastle University’s ‘Arrow project‘ on some research which led to this ‘Impact Report’.
