START UP supports all areas of the self-employed. The opportunities we provide extend to any Newcastle University student or recent graduate who wants to work for themselves in any capacity, full or part-time. 

From entrepreneurs launching growth and scale companies, creating jobs and trading globally, to social impactors driving change in our communities, international graduates starting a business in the UK, and independent professionals who freelance, operate as a sole trader, or design a flexible, hybrid career path that works for them.

Interviews with START UP founders

Above all, we celebrate diversity of background, talent, skill and entrepreneurial mindset. We encourage all who create opportunities for themselves and others whether driven by innovation, to pioneer change or seek independence. Hear from some of our START UP founders and freelancers in the interviews below and video case studies on our YouTube channel.
