Startups 2.0

We are launching an annual search for the North East and Tees Valley’s under-the-radar technology startups in association with Ignite.

The North East & Tees Valley Startups 2.0 list – to be published on and promoted via BusinessCloud’s wider network – recognises fledgling companies which are bootstrapped, pre-seed or angel-backed. These founder-led startups must demonstrate that they are either building or harnessing a unique technology.

They must also be willing to speak honestly about the origins of their business, their journey to date and plans for the future.

Founders can nominate their business for the next North East & Tees Valley Startups 2.0 list using the form below and must include their full contact details. The closing date for entries is Sunday 12th November 2023.

If the founders are successful, they will be notified before Friday 17th November 2023.

The North East & Tees Valley Startups 2.0 list will be published and unveiled at an early evening event on 27th November – register here – where several of the successful companies will pitch for a package of support from Ignite and TechBlast/BusinessCloud.

Disclaimer: we will not rely solely on nominations when finalising Startups 2.0 lists.
