 Edinburgh-based FreeAgent backs Newcastle Startup Week as Headline Sponsor for second year in 2020

FreeAgent, the UK’s number one accountancy software for small businesses, has confirmed they will be the Headline Sponsor of the annual Newcastle Startup Week festival for a second year in 2020.

The sponsorship will enable the Newcastle Startup Week team to run their 5-day festival for the 4th year in May 2020, plus their monthly Founders’ Friday events which have been taking place at the Tuspark Barclays Eagle Lab co-working space in Newcastle on the last Friday of every month since July 2018.

Since 2017, almost 2500 people have attended the Newcastle Startup Week & Founders’ Friday events to learn how to be more entrepreneurial and start or grow a business in the North East of England. With just over 600 delegates attending Newcastle Startup Week in both 2017 & 2018, then 790 in 2019, the team expects the number to rise in 2020.

FreeAgent first showed their support for Newcastle Startup Week in 2019, providing delegates with a special discount on their award-winning accountancy software, an inspirational talk by their Co-Founder & CEO, Ed Molyneux on Day 1, plus 1-2-1 business advice and support across all 5 days of the festival.

Paul Lancaster (Founder & Event Producer, Newcastle Startup Week) said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have FreeAgent’s support for a second year in a row as they totally understand what our events are all about & share the same commitment & passion as us for helping entrepreneurs & small business owners pursue their dreams & fulfil their potential.”

“I also think there’s a huge opportunity for us to bring the startup & scaleup communities in the North East of England & South East of Scotland much closer together for mutual benefit via our events (especially Newcastle & Edinburgh) & am excited about developing this idea further with FreeAgent’s support.”

Karen Melville (Senior Events Manager, FreeAgent) said: “We loved everything about Newcastle Startup Week 2019 & it was the perfect audience for FreeAgent! We’re therefore delighted to be the Headline Sponsor for Newcastle Startup Week 2020 & to continue our sponsorship of Founders’ Friday up to April 2021 & are excited about working more closely with the team over the months ahead!”

The fourth annual Newcastle Startup Week festival will take place across multiple venues in Newcastle and Gateshead between 18-22 May 2020. Further details on the event schedule, speakers, sponsors & tickets can be found at http://newcastlestartupweek.com
