Seed fund2019-09-18T10:08:20+01:00

We have an investment fund of seed capital to help spin-outs validate business models and demonstrate value to investors.

Northern Accelerator will make a long lasting impact on the North East’s innovation ecosystem.

Alongside the creation of a venture capital fund for spin-out businesses from North East universities, our seed fund will allow spin-outs to demonstrate their value, supporting a pipeline of ambitious, globally scalable businesses.

We will announce further details about our seed fund and creation of a venture capital fund in autumn 2019.

“Northern Accelerator is a game-changer for the north east economy, a vital contribution to delivering the regional strategic economic plans and a national exemplar”

Roy Sandbach OBE, Chair of Northern Accelerator’s Strategic Advisory Board
