Over the past few years we’ve worked with thousands of inspiring people and companies across the North East, helping them to start and grow their business. We'd love to share your story to inspire other people and businesses to take the next step in whatever they’re hoping to achieve…

If you’ve had support from us, either to start your business or to help it grow, we’d love to hear your story. Maybe you turned your hobby into a flourishing business; perhaps you’ve developed a new product or started exporting overseas - whatever your story is, we want to hear it and feature it on our website for other people to see.

So if you’d like to inspire other people to do what you’ve done and you wouldn’t mind writing a few words (maybe even sending us a couple of photos), just drop us a quick email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
