Day 1


Monday 21 September 2020 @ The Boiler Shop, Stephenson Quarter (10am-5pm)

As usual, our 4th annual Newcastle Startup Week festival will officially begin at Robert Stephenson & Co’s beautifully refurbished Boiler Shop directly behind Central Station.

As the world’s first purpose-built locomotive steam engine factory (which powered the railway industry & industrial revolution in the early 19th century), it’s the perfect venue to showcase the new entrepreneurial revolution taking place right now in the North East of England!


Since 2017 we have become known for putting world-class speakers onstage on Day 1 that will inspire, motivate & encourage you to ‘Start Something New’ in the days, weeks & months that follow!

Confirmed Day 1 speakers so far include:

The event will also include a mini Business Expo featuring our Sponsors & Exhibitors & live startup pitches plus catering from a selection of local independent food pop-ups.

5pm-6pm: Happy Hour Drinks @ The Boiler Shop

7pm-Late: After Party / Networking Event

Continue the conversation & ‘Start Something New’ with speakers, sponsors & fellow delegates at a nearby bar (venue TBC).
