Tech North initiative designed to support ambitious digital entrepreneurs

Northern Stars is a Tech North initiative designed to support ambitious digital entrepreneurs from across the North of England, by connecting digital founders and showcasing their talent on the national and international stage.

It will raise the profile of inspiring digital startup businesses and broaden the startup community’s connections with investors and a wider support network.

Working in partnership with organisations at local, national and international levels, Northern Stars offers digital entrepreneurs a series of regular events, missions and networking opportunities.

Baltic Creatives MD Mark Lawler and Operations Officer Chris Green are members of The Advisory Panel for this project. They have contributed their experience, time and resources toward the design and delivery of the Northern Stars programme.

The Competition

Following applications, there will be a series of Northern Stars pitch events, in partnership with Crowdcube, taking place in Hull, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and Sunderland in September and October.

From the shortlist built up through the events and online applications, 20 finalists will be chosen by an independent selection panel, made up of respected tech industry leaders.

These founders will be invited to the Northern Stars final to pitch their startup in front of the audience and the expert judging panel, who will name the 10 winning startups of Northern Stars 2015.

Liverpool’s Northern Star pitch event will take place here at Baltic Creative CIC on Tuesday 13th October at 5.00pm.

This event will also feature the launch of Binary - Liverpool's new creative and digital festival, coming to the Baltic Triangle Spring 2016.
