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 30th June 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 on the 1st July.
  • 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 Tuesday 30th June, 10am – 1pm (breaks included).

Video Library
