Our vision is to help create a better future for people and the planet by investing in founders who are making waves with innovative solutions to social and environmental challenges, and harnessing the power of partnerships.

When we invest in you and your team, we offer our expertise, experience and networks, as well as funding.

We are focused on social as well as financial goals, so if you are developing innovative solutions with a positive impact that can scale up nationally and globally, get in touch.

Northstar Ventures has a dedicated social investment and venture investment team with decades of experience supporting founders, charities and social enterprises. Our team works closely with organisations to ensure that our investment is the right fit, shaping our investment to the organisation, not the other way around. As a result, our investments are as varied and made to measure as the wide range of organisations across the North East we have supported.
