Tyneside Crowd is a new Crowdfunding platform where people can collaborate on creative and innovative projects to improve and celebrate the places where they live, work and study. Through this initiative we want to continue a proud legacy of industry and entrepreneurship that goes back to Roman times, through the industrial revolution, and to the present day. We want to support local people to come up with projects which provide solutions to the challenges they face in their local area or to build on new opportunities. From music festivals to art installations, guerrilla gardening to pop up markets, if you have an idea to make your place even better, we want to hear from you. We will be running a funding round in Winter 2018. We want to support as many ideas as possible and have a fund of £60k available. See the below tab for more information on the round and the key dates so you don't miss out!

We are in the process of developing the community green space into an attractive play zone and community garden where local residents can relax, attend workshops in horticulture and which will also provide educational areas for schools and other community groups. We have also set up a social enterprise arm which contributes to the running cost of the core project. So far we have a community cafe; Yummy Mummies outside catering and set up a community art gallery on site where residents of all ages show case the art work they produce.

The New Venture, Start Up NE1? Is a collaboration by Enterprising Students from both Northumbria and Newcastle Universities, Paul Hughes project lead, and President of NUOVO, Northumbria’s student enterprise society, explains,? “I was shocked when I heard that the North East has the lowest number of start-up businesses within the UK, bearing in mind, we have higher than average unemployment and yet such an inspiring city! I got together with fellow students from both Universities to develop a plan on how we could change this. “Once we had the concept, we needed the help that we are about to offer others, and we then enlisted agents to set about finding us some space, along with taking guidance on how to deliver the project!” “At present, we have an empty unit that needs knitting out. We are looking to raise the £6,000 we will need to pay for utilities and a part-time enterprise manager, we will also be asking for furniture and equipment donations
