The North East BIC is looking forward to planning a full calendar of exciting and original events for entrepreneurs and businesses once we get to the other side of the Covid-19 disruption.
 

In the meantime, we remain committed to providing services and online events to meet the needs of new and thriving businesses and we are delighted to be delivering workshops which you can participate in from the safety of your own home or workplace.

We’ve also included below some events delivered by our partners that we think may be of interest to you.
