On the back of being shortlisted as one of twenty finalists (out of over 200 startups) for the hugely successful Northern Stars startup competition which culminated last week, we’re delighted to be working with the organisers of Newcastle Scaleup Summit which takes place in Newcastle upon Tyne on Thursday 23 November.
Newcastle Scaleup Summit is a one-day conference organised by the team behind the influential Newcastle Startup Week festival which took place over 5 days in May.
Unlike the Newcastle Startup Week festival which provided hundreds of people across the city with the knowledge to start or grow a business in the North East of England, the Scaleup Summit is devoted to showing startups how to scaleup, following methodology laid out by The ScaleUp Institute.
Scaling a startup is critical to sustaining growth and productivity and startups of all sizes need all the help they can get to do this. It is a tricky transition at best, more so in these uncertain times. Newcastle Scaleup Summit is a fantastic way to gain a head start in the key tactics for generating sustainable growth and tickets are
still available. -SOLD OUT-
