Following the successful pilot of NBSL’s online masterclass sessions during June, Bitesize Business (Durham) is set to make a welcome return in September.

North East based software innovator Excelpoint has undertaken a brand review and unveiled a new corporate brand identity and website thanks to funding from NBSL.

The sheer determination of North East businesses to adapt during the COVID-19 crisis has been incredible to see and support.  Businesses across the North East have been regularly applying to the North East Business Support Fund to seek grants to update their business models or improve their communications through the use of digital technology.

With the safe transport of goods and services high on the list of priorities in today’s climate, Logico have accessed the North East Business Support Fund to help build a brand to match their expertise across the transport industry.

The University of Sunderland is in their 10th consecutive year of offering the very popular ERDF funded Graduate Internship Scheme; and they’ve just extended the scheme for a further 2 years now running until 2023!
