ERDF - North East Business

ERDF North East
We are a Delivery Partner within the Enterprise Support in the North East 2 project. This is a business start-up project being delivered across North East to assist potential entrepreneurs to become enterprise ready and ultimately self-employed. This is part funded by European Regional Development Fund.

Helping you start your business is our work, but also our passion.

As organisation’s EMS and Enterprise Revolution have contributed 40% of the cost of running the ERDF programme aimed at helping businesses start up and build and grow their businesses in the North East.

We know the people of the North East are entrepreneurial and have a massive set of ambitions for change and growth.

The scheme works as such:

Initially you will meet with your allocated business adviser who will develop a package of support specifically for your own start up needs.

The support is fully-funded and includes a variety of workshops along with specific one to one support where you cover everything you need to start and grow your own business in a supportive environment where you have the opportunity to meet and network with others also looking to start a business. These include topics like:

  • Business planning
  • Sales and marketing
  • Social media
  • Company structure
  • Finance for your business
