Captured – Innovative Business Support Programme

Delivered by Newcastle University Business School

Applications are now open for Newcastle University Business School’s Captured Programme.

Newcastle University Business School’s Captured programme will help you develop the personal and business skills that you need to develop your business. It does require you to commit to four 2.5 hour online workshops, but it is not time away from your business – it is time spent developing yourself and your business.

What’s on offer?

You will be part of a cohort of 6-8 small firms and we will match you to a manager/mentor from a larger regional firm after your first workshop. The majority of your Captured time will be focused on harnessing the skills and expertise of your ‘manager’ to help you develop a better understanding of your opportunities and needs, and how to address challenges you face in achieving your aims, but you will also have plenty of time for peer-to-peer learning.


To qualify, your business can be from any sector, but should have fewer than 20 employees and be based in County Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle upon Tyne, North Tyneside, Northumberland, South Tyneside or Sunderland.

Workshop dates

Captured 2021 workshops will be delivered online until a time that we can meet face-to-face safely again.

Cohort 1:
Workshop 1 – Thursday 10th June
Workshop 2 – Thursday 17th June
Workshop 3 – Thursday 8th July
Workshop 4 – Thursday 22nd July
