Kickstart Your Business Workshop Series

We have teamed up with the British Library’s Business & IP Centre (BIPC) to deliver grass roots business support on your doorstep, it's free and open to all business owners across the capital. Kickstart Your Business is a two day start-up programme aimed to help you start and progress your business development, for free. Day 1 covers the multiple areas of intellectual property and their relevance to your business, as well as practical tips on how to use the BIPC's resources to protect, research and develop your business idea. Day 2 takes a deep dive into the areas you need to focus on to kickstart your business; from the essential building blocks of starting up and running a successful business to common pitfalls and how to avoid them.
