Northstar Ventures is delivering new support for North East startups and SMEs

Northstar Ventures has teamed with Business Doctors to develop a new solution targeting businesses in the region.

Working in collaboration, Northstar and Business Doctors piloted a new initiative called The Breakthrough Growth Masterclass, aimed at supporting startups and SMEs to be able to plan sustainable futures.

The initiative comprises of a full day’s workshop, followed up with a one to one session with one of the mentors from Business Doctors.

Jane Reynolds, Northstar Ventures’ business development manager, said: “As a leading early stage investor, at Northstar we support businesses and entrepreneurs in many different ways.

“We were delighted to work with the Business Doctors to develop this offer, the combination of a very comprehensive, practical group workshop followed by the focused session gives the chance for business to share knowledge and experience with their peers as well as experts.”

The pilot brought together a group of business owners, from different sectors, providing them with an opportunity to take some time out and focus on the issues that are holding back their business growth such as cash flow or lack of sales or profit.

Graham Robson, regional director of Business Doctors North East, added: “Our new partnership with Northstar on this initiative is really exciting.

“Like Northstar, we love to work with businesses and entrepreneurs to help and support their ambitions to maximise growth potential and value.

“As a ‘consultant-free zone’ our business advisors have the wealth of experience needed to help transform entrepreneurial led businesses into significant enterprises, and we can’t wait to get on the pitch with this project.”
