Business is better together – We understand the power of collaboration and over the last 5 years we have forged partnerships to provide our businesses with the best support possible.
Within the North East region we have close ties with leading enterprises, communities, organisations and networks. And on a national scale we are part of Cavendish Enterprise, giving us a voice and presence that can genuinely benefit the businesses we work with.
The Start & Grow programme is managed throughout England by Cavendish Enterprise, a consortium of the UK’s best enterprise agencies and delivered in areas with lower levels of business start-up.
As a member of this consortium we are not only able to deliver a proven and highly valued service to the people of the North East that is supported by the Regional Growth Fund but also leverage the benefits of national collaboration with other agencies.
As the key delivery partner for Virgin StartUp in the North East we have helped over 300 new businesses access £4.2million in low cost business loans . . . and counting!
This programme and our partnership with Virgin StartUp has helped us to support businesses to achieve sustained growth and scale-up faster than might otherwise be possible. Many of those businesses go on to receive invaluable additional exposure through the wider Virgin Network.
“TEDCO are one of Virgin StartUp’s leading Partners, delivering Virgin-Class support to entrepreneurs in The North-East. We couldn’t do what we do without them, they have been trusted Partners since Virgin StartUp began back in 2013”
Andy Fishburn, Managing Director of Virgin StartUp

North East Enterprise Agency
North East Enterprise Agency is a unique collaboration of multi-award winning enterprise agencies supporting businesses across the North East of England.
Every business comes to rely on external expertise at one point or another in their journey. Whether it is an accountant, solicitor, marketing agency or a company within your supply chain, having good relationships within the enterprise community is a vital asset.
At TEDCO Business Support, we are able to add value to both new and growing businesses, making introductions and recommending suppliers we trust as part of our work.
“It is those partner relationships that we are constantly looking to cultivate, so that we might refer our clients to suppliers or contractors we know represent quality, value for money and a safe pair of hands. Over time, start-ups may graduate into TEDCO Partners themselves and supply products or services to both the next generation of new enterprises, and also those businesses that supported them through the early stages of growth.
“In this way, we hope to develop TEDCO Partnerships that add value to both our clients and the local economy.”
Carole White, TEDCO CEO
