The Region's
Innovation Conference

Date for 2017 to be announced shortly

VentureFest North East is all about bringing people together to create new business opportunities and make exciting things happen.

It’s a day in the business calendar that’s dedicated to helping businesses:

  • Explore new opportunities, collaborations and challenges
  • Discover ways to do things differently
  • Meet investors to back their plans
  • Make new connections with those who can help accelerate their growth
  • Find out how to commercialise ideas

The programme is packed with inspirational content from those who’ve succeeded by daring to break the mould. There’s plenty of practical advice too from industry experts.

Our 2015 event brought together 600 people with dozens of investors, academics, industry experts and advisors with specific innovation expertise. Our 2016 event promises to be even bigger and better.
