Description

Building on the success of our 5-day, citywide and multi-venue 'Newcastle Startup Week' festival in May, our 1-day 'Newcastle Scaleup Summit' on Thursday 23rd November 2017 will help you learn how to take your business to the next level.

Going deeper into the topics we covered on our ‘Growing & Scaling’ day in May, the full-day event in November will feature a range of speakers in the morning who will share personal and practical insights on how they grew their own business, or explain products, services or programmes they use to help others fulfil their potential.
