The NE Innovation Fund

With this programme, we  look for strong teams with great ideas

Ideas that will drive high growth, scalable businesses. As one of the leading early-stage investors into UK businesses, NorthStar Ventures make and manage investments into a wide range of ventures. Their experienced team works closely with companies in their portfolio, offering advice and support as well as capital.

The North East Innovation Fund was jointly conceived with Auxin and Generator.  Northstar is backing this programme to give ambitious entrepreneurs the best possible chance to demonstrate that they have market-proven ideas that could turn into scalable businesses.

  • Do you have an exciting idea that could help break your business into new markets?
  • Are you looking to scale up and know how to get your business to that next level?
  • Do you operate in the North East LEP area?
  • If so, you could access £10,000 as part of the Innovation Fund delivered by Auxin.
