We have an investment fund of seed capital to help spin-outs validate business models and demonstrate value to investors.
Northern Accelerator is making a long lasting impact on the North East’s innovation ecosystem.
Alongside the creation of a venture capital fund, our seed fund allows spin-outs to demonstrate their value, supporting a pipeline of ambitious, globally scalable businesses.
The fund, managed Northstar Ventures, has made significant investments in businesses with the best commercial ideas and high growth potential in a targeted group of sectors including healthcare, clean technology and data.
We’ve invested £1.8m in 9 businesses, as part of funding rounds that raised an overall £6.2m – therefore helping to leverage significant funding from other investors.
