What is the Business and Intellectual Property Centre (BIPC) Lewisham? 

BIPC Lewisham builds on the achievements of the SiLL (Start-ups in London Libraries) programme to support aspiring entrepreneurs and businesses locally.


BIPC Lewisham is part of the British Library’s National Network and aims to extend the provision of business support in the Borough of Lewisham, by helping aspiring entrepreneurs, start-ups and established businesses to increase their entrepreneurial skills and confidence, as well as providing access to business information and resources. BIPC Lewisham also facilitates a variety of expert led workshops, one-to-ones, and networking events within the local business community. 


Contact the BIPC Lewisham team at [email protected] and if you would like to receive occasional updates about workshops and events, please send a blank email with 'update' in the subject line.
