The North East BIC offers the perfect environment for you to start and grow a business.
Established in 1994 with the aim of encouraging and supporting entrepreneurship, we have created a unique community which fosters business success and inspires the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Our unique package of workspace, business support, events and a community spirit that champions business success has been at the heart of our ethos from day one and continues to be the golden thread that weaves our services together.
And it doesn’t stop there. As a not-for-profit social enterprise, we continually reinvest the money we make into launching new services and facilities to ensure the region’s businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs have the tools they need to succeed.
Customer success drives our service. We just want to help you to achieve your goals.
Working together for good. We love nothing more than collaborating with our customers and colleagues for the good of our communities.
We respect difference and value the contribution of every member of the team in achieving our success.
Down to earth and practical, helping business owners navigate the ups and downs.
Expert business advice for entrepreneurs, as they embark on their journey and at every step along the way.
Proud of our strong roots in the North East and our longstanding international partnerships.
We have an abundance of breakout and seating areas to eat, meet or relax along the banks of the River Wear, including our café terrace, which provides the perfect spot for a coffee, make a few calls or even host a breakout meeting.
