Innovation Events

We work with our partners and clusters to bring North East businesses a programme of Innovation Events that will inspire, inform and create the space for brilliant ideas to come to life.

Our major events include the annual innovation conference, VentureFest North East and Accelerating Investment & Innovation Summit. But, we also run a dedicated programme of workshops to help regional businesses access finance, improve their innovation practice and build connections.


Despite current circumstances, we remain focused on collaborating with and providing support for North East businesses hosting all of our events online.

We also use this space to share events from our partners, which we think will help benefit growing businesses and start-ups.

All of our past webinars have been recorded and are available to watch again.
