Support for Alumni Entrepreneurs

Our award-winning START UP team can help any alumni who want to start or grow a business, freelance career or social enterprise.

What is START-UP?

We are proud of the many alumni-founded businesses that started life at Newcastle University. This includes luxury sportswear brands, innovative tech solutions – and even a brewery.

Over 200 businesses have benefitted from START UP support, leading to a total annual turnover of £155 million and over 1,140 new jobs created.
