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.
