Hello and welcome to Newcastle Science City’s September e-bulletin.
Throughout the summer, thoughts have been on the Comprehensive Spending Review in October, which will have serious implications for the public sector.
At Newcastle Science City we haven’t let it overshadow some of the exciting developments we’ve overseen recently.
In August, we spun out a promising young business called PSAEON that promises to revolutionise the way healthcare students train for practical exams.
A previous spinout, Every1 Speaks, secured an international sample of schools to try out its student voice software this coming academic year. It’s great to see new businesses like this attracting local and international interest.
In September, First Friday, our monthly networking meeting for the leading lights of science and technology businesses, also celebrated its first birthday, and Newcastle Science City’s Vision for the Future was published too.
A crop of exciting new businesses are about to launch from the Innovation Machine, so we have momentum on our side.
Whatever the outcome of the CSR, Newcastle Science City is determined to carry on delivering the new businesses and commercial support that will give depth and diversity to the region’s economy.
Finally, I would like to thank Neil Stephenson, CEO of Onyx Group, for agreeing to contribute towards this month’s guest slot. If you would like to take part in a later edition of this e-bulletin, please get in touch.
