Funding Toolkit

Our Access to Finance programme allows businesses to explore the different finance options available and provides the tools and knowledge to help them on their funding journey.

We’ve teamed up with Northstar Ventures to bring a package of online tools and advice for North East SME’s looking to raise finance for their business. 

Our online package of support consists of:

  • A webinar on 27th January which includes a live Q&A with investors, expert advice on cash flow during COVID-19 and the types of funding available.
  • Attendees from the webinar will be invited to online pitch training.
  • We are building a library of video content with advice on raising finance. (Please see below to watch these videos).

Funding Webinar

To get involved, sign up for our webinar on Wednesday 27th January, 10am – 1pm (breaks included).

Video Library

As part of our online support, we’re working with our partners to bring you a video library of funding advice. We’ll be adding more videos in the coming weeks so keep checking back. In the meantime, take a look at our current videos below:
