The Innovation SuperNetwork exists to connect businesses in North East England with the opportunities, finance and support needed to innovate and grow. Supported by 60 partners, including all five regional universities and high-profile organisations across the public and private sectors, we bring together the innovation ecosystem to support economic growth.
We have a secret. Innovation isn’t just for boffins in a lab. If you’re doing something different or have ideas to take your business in a new direction, we’re here to help your bright ideas fly!
Forging connections to solve problems
Innovation happens best when different ideas come together. We bridge the gaps between sectors and help bring solutions to real-world industrial problems.
Building our innovation communities
Connecting with businesses working in the same space is helping to put the region on the map in key sectors. By connecting clusters with each other, we’re creating opportunities for businesses in all sectors.
Finding finance to support bright ideas
Our investor network and inside knowledge of the funding landscape is helping regional start-up and scale-up enterprises secure finance through one-to-one support and group workshops.
