Scale Up North East .. the first 40 days…

Mar 02, 2018



After months of planning, development, bid writing, meetings, market research, business engagement, internal discussions and loads of partnership work with regional and National stakeholders the multi-million pound Scaleup North East programme is live!

We launched officially on Friday 26th January at the Crowne Plaza, Newcastle in front of a packed audience of the region’s business community. Guest speakers including the hugely successful ‘Dragon’s slayer’, Levi Roots, a panel discussion with contributions from leading business figures from the North East and Chaired by Andrew Hodgson, Chair of NELEP.

Even before the launch, Scaleup North East was underway, with over 30 businesses registering early Expressions of Interest on www.scaleupnortheast.co.uk We recruited the first of our Scaleup Partners – Craig Huntingdon who was dealing with enquiries and meeting business leaders to understand their ambitions for scaling up their companies.
