Scaleup North East

Scaleup North East

Scaleup North East works with businesses that can demonstrate both the hunger and potential to achieve high levels of growth.

We are delivering the programme in partnership with the North East Local Enterprise Partnership.

Scaleup North East is partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

The support our Scaleup partners give is led by the needs of your business, it’s not a blanket approach where one size fits all. They would get behind your business, investing time, energy and resources to help you become the best that you can be.

The Scaleup partners work with ambitious businesses to achieve defined objectives, ensuring they are taking the actions required to scale. They are the go-to people throughout the process, who you can trust and lean on. However, they challenge you, keeping you on your toes and making sure that you follow through and keep focused on the end goal.
