A Purpose to Inspire People
Our Purpose creates the ideal environment for innovation to thrive, making a positive impact on our Society, Environment and Economy (SEE) by focusing on digital, data and tech skills where finance has a part to play across multiple sectors of our lives and in so doing seeing our regional businesses and people benefit.
Our Mission is to tackle the problems hindering the region’s progress, building on the great organisations that call the NE their home and collaborate with organisations from anywhere that share the same goals.
We do this by bringing purpose driven projects with an aspect of finance, FinTech, AnyTech to face into areas such as the poverty premium, pension deficit, inclusivity, equality, financial crime, cost of living and levelling up. We do this through education, mentoring, working on real life projects, with unique data to improve our talent, fill their skills gap, to innovate and make an impact.
Unique Business Model
A Business Model to Unlock Our Boundless Potential.
Like other regions, Northeast England grapples with a significant digital skills gap, inhibiting its ability to align education with commercial skills demand to attract and retain top talent. We Solve some of this with real life projects, practicing existing, new skills alongside mentors and support.
The Northeast has the potential to become a hotbed of innovation, but it has yet to reach a significant threshold, evidenced by low levels of entrepreneurship and fewer scale-ups. We solve this by collaborating with entrepreneurs, education, corporates, organisations to bring viable use cases to a point of further investment.
By addressing the digital skills gap, fostering innovation, alongside showcasing the region’s academic and corporate expertise, we can unleash Northeast England’s true potential. We enable our partners track their efforts all the way to impact.
