Informal Fridays North East is an informal forum to discuss innovation and entrepreneurship, organised by Newcastle Science City.

An interesting and diverse group get together every second Friday of the month in Sunderland to informally discuss different approaches to innovation and make new contacts.

There will be innovation scouts, financiers, entrepreneurs, designers, scientists, and some budding business folk.

What is Informal Friday North East?

An opportunity for innovative people from around the region to meet and discuss new ideas and opportunities.

An opportunity to meet entrepreneurs in a relaxed environment to talk about their experiences, and yours.

An opportunity to meet people who can help to develop your ideas/insights into businesses.

How have Informal Fridays come about?

First Friday North East has become a hugely popular forum for science and technology entrepreneurs in the region to meet up and discuss topics ranging from emerging technologies to the regional economy. Usually held at the Central Bean Coffee Shop on Gallowgate, Newcastle, First Friday regularly attracts more than 100 people who come to meet in a relaxed, informal environment.

Following a successful trial which saw its First Friday North East networking event held outside its home city for the first time, Newcastle Science City has launched regular monthly sessions at locations elsewhere in the region including Morpeth and Sunderland.

Since it launched in August 2009, First Friday North East has become a hugely popular forum for science and technology entrepreneurs in the region to meet up and discuss topics ranging from emerging technologies to the regional economy. Following a successful trial event Sunderland back in February, when more than 30 people attended, Newcastle Science City will be launching the two new regular events under the ‘Informal Friday’ banner.

Newcastle Science City is working closely with partner organisations, including Sunderland University and the North East Chamber of Commerce, to offer the Informal Friday events, which reflect the importance of innovative science and technology businesses for the region’s future prosperity.
