Accelerating Investment and Innovation Summit

As part of our work to grow the region’s investment ecosystem, we partnered with the British Business Bank to deliver the Accelerating Investment and Innovation Summit for the third year running.

Our 2021 event focused on building connectivity between the region’s innovative businesses and the investor community. Our 2022 event focused on answering the question – is ‘levelling-up’ enough to drive early-stage investment in North East businesses?

The North continues to produce a growing number of innovative businesses, but research shows the innovation funding gap remains an issue.

Our FREE annual virtual Summit is aimed at anyone with an interest in the innovation funding landscape, including innovative SMEs seeking access to finance support as well as angel investors looking to connect with SMES.
