Better North East
Funding For Business Consulting
When North East businesses grow, North East jobs are created. When North East businesses are resilient, North East jobs are more secure.
People in secure jobs spend more money in the local economy. More money spent in the local economy benefits even more North East businesses and it becomes a virtuous circle!
The last 2 years has seen an unprecedented set of challenges being presented to businesses in the North East of England. Some businesses have survived, some have thrived, and sadly some businesses didn’t make it.

We want to see a business landscape full of thriving business across all sectors to help the North East become the powerhouse we all know it could be.

Where we come from
Build Back Better North East was created by a collective of North East entrepreneurs and philanthropists who want to see the North East region thrive.
Together they have provided the resources and 500 hours worth of funding for business consulting services during the first wave of the Scheme.
