North East & Tees Valley Startups 2.0 new

Welcome to the first edition of North East & Tees Valley Startups 2.0.

These 34 founder-led startups are not backed by venture capital. Bootstrapped, pre-seed or angel-backed, the enterprises are in the early stages of their journey and either building or harnessing a unique technology.

This list was curated through a nomination process. All startups on this list have either self-nominated or been nominated by another unaffiliated organisation.

Delivered by TechBlast and sponsored by Ignite, the campaign seeks to raise awareness of tech startups in the North East of England and Tees Valley.

Ignite runs programmes to help founders launch and scale tech startups in the North East of England. Applications for the second cohort of Ignite’s new Launch Programme will be opening up in January – interested companies can apply here.

Ignite is supported by North of Tyne Combined Authority and Barclays Eagle Labs.
