Running high quality events and conferences is not only hard, it’s expensive – especially a 5-day, multi-venue festival like Newcastle Startup Week!

When we decided to run our first event in 2017 it was never about making lots of money and instead about making an IMPACT in order to help inspire and support more people to start a business and kickstart a new entrepreneurial revolution in the North East of England.

This wouldn’t be possible without the financial support of our Sponsors who help cover the costs of planning and organising our event which in turn helps us grow the economy of our region for everyone.

Why Sponsor?

Newcastle Startup Week 2017 attracted over 600 delegates across 5 days and included pre-starts, early-stage startups, established SMEs, fast-growing scaleups, enterprise level businesses, business advisers, investors, academics, public sector representatives and the media too (see the photos on Facebook or Instagram).

In 2018, we’re aiming for 750+ delegates with a stretch target of 1,000.

If you’re looking to raise the profile of your business in the North East of England, want to launch or promote genuinely useful products or services aimed at startups and SMEs, are an investor looking for dealflow, are looking to find talent, or just want to show your support for our work, we want to hear from you!
