On 21st September 2022, NorthInvest and Paceline are hosting a special event to launch Sustainable North, a new initiative focussing on promoting the start-up and growth of sustainable tech businesses across the North of England.
Over the next 5 years, Sustainable North will support the creation of 60 sustainable tech businesses across the North of England. The founders of Sustainable North – NorthInvest and Paceline – aim to spotlight some fantastic Northern sustainable tech businesses, inspire others and seek to harness the power of the North to get behind the opportunity to make the North the place to start and grow a sustainable tech business.
Since its inception, NorthInvest has been determined to support the growth of Northern-based early stage tech and digital start-ups by growing a diverse community of investors, sector specialists and fellow entrepreneurs to offer advice, insights and business support alongside investment.
Paceline helps tech scaleups to tell their stories and tech startups to build their brands. They help individuals and companies to develop connections with key influencers from the region’s business and civic communities.
