New Business and Intellectual Property Centre

Wednesday 27 February 2019

The Business & IP Centre Cambridgeshire supports entrepreneurs, inventors and small businesses from that first spark of inspiration to successfully launching and developing their business.

On 1 February Cambridgeshire Libraries launched the new Business & IP (Intellectual Property) Centre service in Cambridge Central Library.

This new service is in partnership with the British Library and Peterborough Libraries, and is the 12th to join the national network of centres, modelled on the British Library's successful Business & IP Centre located in the heart of London.

The launch kicked off a six-week programme of events and activities delivered by staff and partners in the centre.

The BIPC Network Business and IP Centre - The British Library is a unique initiative in the UK that takes advantage of the existing public library infrastructure to provide critical business information (not available from any other business support provider), delivered by trained staff and business experts, with a proven and consistent quality of service.

This new service provides free access to important business and IP information, not available anywhere else in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. The Business & IP Centre is also a physical hub in Cambridge Central Library and Peterborough Central Library, with meeting rooms, networking space, and friendly staff on hand to guide people to the help and resources that they need to start and run successful businesses.
