Building on the success of our 5-day, citywide and multi-venue 'Newcastle Startup Week' festival in May, we're running a 1-day 'Newcastle Scaleup Summit' at the Live Theatre on Thursday 23rd November 2017 to help people learn how to grow and take their business to the next level.

Going deeper into the topics we covered on our 'Growing & Scaling' day in May, the full-day event in November will feature a range of speakers in the morning who will share personal and practical insights on how they grew their own business, or explain products, services or programmes they use to help others fulfil their potential.
