Event description

Description

VentureFest North East is a free, full-day event focussing on how businesses can grow through innovation, designed to connect businesses, corporates, investors, academics and advisors with specific expertise in innovation.

The programme includes the chance to hear from high profile speakers including Holly Tucker, Founder of Notonthehighstreet.com and Holly&Co, and Dr Nick Appleyard from the European Space Agency. You'll also have the chance to take part in in-depth workshops and one-to-one coaching sessions from industry innovation experts. With the opportunity to pitch your product or idea to leading investors and seed funders, you will leave the event with new ideas, contacts and approaches for your business.

For VentureFest North East 2018, we're teaming up with the Engineering Employers Federation (EEF) and are shining a spotlight on manufacturing, giving you the chance to reduce costs, improve productivity, develop new market opportunities, and most importantly, make more money.

VentureFest North East is part of the Innovation SuperNetwork programme, which works with innovative businesses, investors and experts across the North East of England. It is supported by the North East LEP, Northumbrian Water, ENGIE, Reece Innovation, Innovate UK, the Knowledge Transfer Network and the North East BIC with part funding from the European Regional Development Fund, as well as support from around 50 partner organisations.
