In Where to get free basic Information on Intellectual Property 18 Dec 2013 I mentioned the British Library Business and IP Centre. The British Library is part of a nationwide network which provides entrepreneurs and SMEs across the UK with free access to databases, market research, journals, directories and reports worth thousands of pounds. Each of those centres maintains a programme of free and low-cost events and workshops on a range of topics including business planning, marketing and intellectual property.
The latest library to join the chain is the Jubilee Library on Jubilee Street in Brighton. According to the British Library website, the Jubilee Library offers:
- Workshops, one to ones and events for start-ups, SMEs and inventors
- A dedicated space for people to come together and network
- Business information resources including market research intelligence, UK and global company data.
The library promises networking events where participants can meet like-minded entrepreneurs, one-to-one advice and other activities.
Contact the library by email on BIPC@brighton-hove.gov.uk, phone 01273 296984 or through twitter on @BIPCBtnHove,
