Grow Your Business

One of TEDCO’s key objectives is to provide individuals with the advice and necessary tools to scale-up and grow their business.   

We want to work alongside businesses with the ambition to expand their offering and push the boundaries of their original idea. Expansion can mean new job creation or product innovation or even the development of new sectors for the North East economy.

Start and Grow

Since 2015, our flagship Start & Grow programme has helped hundreds of businesses access help from our advisor team to establish routes to start-up, business planning, one-to-one mentoring and support beyond the launch.
