We are a Delivery Partner within the Business Compass Start Up 2 project. This is a business start up project being delivered across Tees Valley to assist potential entrepreneurs to become enterprise ready and ultimately self-employed. This is part funded by European Regional Development Fund.
The support is fully-funded and includes a variety of workshops covering everything needed to start a business. This supportive and collaborative environment also provides individuals with an opportunity to meet and network with others also looking to start a business. These include topics such as: Business planning, Sales and marketing, Social media, Company structure, Finance for your business
There are many workshops available across the Tees Valley region in Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton and Redcar & Cleveland. The Tees Valley Business Start Up programme also provides access to specialist mentoring for start-ups in the following sectors:
Advanced manufacturing, Automotive, Chemical and process, Digital, Healthcare, Logistics, Low carbon, Oil and gas, Professional and business services, Culture and leisure.

At TEDCO we successfully deliver a range of start-up support programmes designed to take ideas and turn them into successful enterprises and business start-ups in the region.
One of TEDCO’s key objectives is to provide individuals and businesses with the ambition to expand, the advice and necessary tools to scale-up and grow their business.
