Businesses and entrepreneurs across the North East are being offered a week-long programme of events and workshops as part of South Tyneside Business Week.

Designed to both showcase and support businesses of all shapes and sizes, the event will run from Monday 13th until Friday 17th June.

Councillor Tracey Dixon, Leader of South Tyneside Council, said: “Supporting businesses is what we do every day, and I am delighted to see the return of South Tyneside Business Week following our success in 2020.

"Celebrating and inspiring entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes across the borough and beyond is essential for ensuring continued growth and innovation, especially following the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We’ve put together a fantastic programme of events delivering relevant content, coming straight from successful local and regional businesses, entrepreneurs and organisations, to equip businesses with the knowledge that they need to thrive. No matter what stage businesses are at, new or established, they will take something from the varied programme of events.”

Regional businesses and support organisations - North East Fund, The Growth Fund, North East Ambition, BIPC, ScaleUp, NEL Fund Managers, BIC and the Advanced Manufacturing Forum will also be on hand to share advice.
