Moves to create a more vibrant start-up culture in the Tees Valley are taking another step forward at Teesside University as part of this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The week will see the university teaming up with Teesside-based accelerator Searchcamp to offer an innovative “lean start-up” programme with world-class speakers between November 15 and 24.

Take a Step Forward is the theme for the week and the university’s events are aimed at new and aspiring entrepreneurs who are ready to move to the next stage in developing their business plans.

Searchcamp was founded as a partnership between the university and local investors, offering new companies up to £15,000 of seed capital and intensive mentoring over a three-month period while living and working on the University campus. Lean start-up thinking and methods form the core principles of Searchcamp and are the central theme for Global Entrepreneurship Week on campus. For more information visit www.gewtees.co.uk
