Do you have experience leading a company and want to make a big impact with a new challenge?
Northern Accelerator recruits experienced business leaders to lead some of the most innovative spin-out businesses from the North East’s world-class universities.
The Executives into Business model has so far placed 35 business executives in companies in a range of sectors, and is an exemplar in research commercialisation.
The execs form a team with some of the greatest academic minds to lead a company from pre-startup, taking world-leading research ‘from lab to life’, making a social impact as well as boosting job creation and economic growth in the region.
If you have experience leading a company, delivering products or services from ideation through to launch, raising investment and venture capital, and management experience, find out more about joining our Executives into Business pool. Once you’re in the pool you’ll have the opportunity to put yourself forward for specific opportunities as they arise.
Execs into Business opportunities are high-responsibility positions, in a micro business environment so you’ll be a hands-on business leader balancing multiple tasks and making rapid and considered business decisions. In return, with funding from ERDF and Research England’s Connecting Capability Fund, we’re able to offer the best business leaders remuneration as well as business shares.
