Newcastle Startup Week Set to Inspire

Startacus RSS

by Startacus Admin

Newcastle Startup Week - a new festival of entrepreneurship aims to inspire more local people to start businesses and attract greater inward investment to the city and wider North East of England region.

Newcastle Startup Week

Taking place over 5 days from 15-19 May 2017, Newcastle Startup Week will also seek to showcase the North East as a great place to start or grow a business and highlight to both local entrepreneurs and those who have made the area their home, why the Newcastle tech scene is so important to the future of the region. 

Organised by well-known startup and community champion Paul Lancaster, whose business Plan Digital UK is based in the North East, the event is aiming to remain as inclusive as possible by selling all-access tickets from just £20 per person (with some free for schools and colleges).

With leading corporate brands such as SAGE, FSB, and Natwest and local organisations including the North East LEP on board as partners, Newcastle Startup Week has already built up an worthy list of supporters and speakers who will be supporting the 5-day event.

The key themes being explored by the event range from ‘Inspiration’ on Monday through to ‘Keep going or Pivot’ by the Friday, allowing for a good mix of information and inspiration to reach a diverse audience of startups and entrepreneurs at different stages of their ‘start a business’ journey.

Key speakers confirmed so far include:

We encourage you all to take a look at Newcastle Startup Week direct and also to follow and support Paul and the team on Twitter via @nclstartupweek and we look forward to hearing more on the event as we get closer to May.
