A Newcastle - based video production agency, which launched last year and works with global clients including Sony Music, has commended the Business & IP Centre Newcastle's Innovation Elevator master class as an excellent resource for business start-ups.

Innovation Elevator is a free practical master class open to SME's across the North East. The event incorporates six expert sessions, focusing on innovation as a tool for growth. Starting at 9am each day, the master classes address a wide spectrum of topics from finance and intellectual property to marketing and sales, with networking lunches on both days.

Candle & Bell is an excellent example of a company that has used the Innovation Elevator to its advantage. We want other regional businesses to utilise this free resource by joining the October event. They too could arm themselves with the necessary skills to become more efficient and creative.
— Luke Burton, manager of the Business & IP Centre Newcastle
