#Libraries kick-starting the next generation of #entrepreneurs

On 21st September thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs across the country will head to their local library to attend free training and inspirational talks as part of the British Library’s national Start-up Day.

Building on the British Library’s first-ever Start-up Day in September last year, where over 700 people took part in an action-packed day, this year we’re planning for a Start-up Day that’s bigger than ever!

Events will be taking place not just in London, but simultaneously in partner libraries right around the UK through the Business & IP Centre National Network: Birmingham, Devon, Hull, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Northamptonshire, Norfolk and Sheffield – and also in Nottingham, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Worcester.

The British Library Business & IP Centre has been helping entrepreneurs from all walks of life to start, protect and grow successful business for over eleven years. It provides access to the UK’s largest collection of intellectual property resources, business data and market research alongside free and low-cost training and support in our inspiring, accessible space. In this time we have supported over half a million people, and enabled the commercialisation of thousands of new ideas. Since 2012 we have been developing the Business & IP Centre Network, helping libraries around the country become engines of economic growth, with ambitions to continue to grow to 20 Centres by the end of the decade.
