Event description

Description

Northstar Ventures, one of the most active early stage investors in the country, has received funding from Innovate UK to help increase the pool of regional angel investors prepared to consider investing in earlier stage, ambitious, innovative businesses in the North East.

We are focusing on spin outs from North East universities, to help them secure angel investment and grant funding to accelerate their growth potential at an earlier stage, and are looking for alumni from North East Universities (Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria and Sunderland Universities) who would be interested in becoming Angel Investors.

Working with Angels has always been core to our offering, and we are now looking forward to opening up more opportunities to those alumni interested in investing in start-up businesses with R&D projects.

This event gives you the chance to come along and find out more from speakers from Northstar Ventures, Durham University, Newcastle University, as well as an existing Angel investor and a spin out company that has received investment. You can hear all about the different aspects and have the chance to get your questions answered.

Timings - 8am for 8.15am start.

Hear from:

Alex Buchan, Investment Director at Northstar Ventures,
David Huntley, Head of Company Creation, Newcastle University, and Tim Hammond, Director, Business and Innovation Services, Durham University
James Widmer, CEO, Advanced Electric Machines – Newcastle spin-out, disruptive electric motor technology business, currently raising £1.5 million
Boguslaw Obara, CTO, Intogral – Durham spin-out, image analysis software, currently raising £1.5m+
