FinanceCamp North East helps businesses across the region to access the funding they need for growth. The programme includes help to understand what types of funding are available, the specific funding that suits specific business needs and what funders are looking for. Combined with training on how to pitch to funders, the programme prepares businesses for direct meetings with funders at a major regional finance conference in April. Funders present range from £1000 start-up loans, through bank finance to multi-million pound venture funders.

As part of the Berwick Investors’ Conference, funding experts from FinanceCamp and partners will be providing a condensed session on accessing funding. The aim is to make it easier and quicker for local businesses to raise the finance they need.

FinanceCamp North East is part of the Innovation SuperNetwork, a £1m three year project to support innovation in the North East of England. Supported by 50 partners, including the North East LEP, North East BIC, Northumbrian Water, Reece Group and Innovate UK's Knowledge Transfer Network, the project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
