Corporate Partnership

Corporate Partnership

We're proud to be partnered with a growing number of corporate organisations who all support entrepreneurship and are experts in their field. 

Sharing our ambition to make the region stronger, each of our partners cares deeply about the North East and the people that live and work here; vying to make a positive contribution to its economic development. 


By bringing together entrepreneurs and corporate leaders to work in collaboration and share business experience, we believe we create the right environment for businesses to develop and grow. 

With sector exclusive agreements, each of our corporate partners is an expert in their own field and keen to support SMEs and entrepreneurial businesses.

If you're the CEO or leader of a business that operates in a B2B environment but wouldn't normally qualify to join the Forum, then our Corporate Partnership is the perfect way for you and some of your senior team to become part of our unique network.

With a host of major organisations already signed up, we work with our partners closely to ensure they all experience the enormous advantages of joining forces with the Forum.
