Description

Join us for a day of free talks, expert workshops and tailored advice designed to get your business off to a flying start

The British Library is leading a revolution by inspiring a thriving community of new and existing business owners. It’s free to join and open to everyone. And it’s transforming the way ideas grow into successful businesses. Whether you're just starting out, need advice on protecting your intellectual property or are ready to take the next step, come along to our action-packed day of free business support with everything you need to turn your idea into a reality.

One ticket gets you access to the whole day, however you can book separately to attend a speed mentoring session or go to a 'How to use the Business & IP Centre' workshop, as spaces for these are limited.

At the British Library event you’ll have the opportunity to attend the following keynote talks:

  • How to understand the UK market right now

  • How to build an effective online marketing strategy

  • How to combine profit with purpose

  • How to build your business without burning out

  • How to start-up on a shoestring

  • How to pitch for success

  • How to use networks to build your business

  • Plus a special keynote speaker to be announced

What’s more, we’ll be running Speed Mentoring throughout the day where you can speak to experts on a variety of topics including:

  • Protecting your business idea

  • Creating a marketing strategy

  • What you need to know about standards and regulations

  • Managing cash-flow

  • Getting your business online

  • Funding your start-up

  • Building your business brand

Experts from Santander, Mintel , Facebook and many more will be on hand throughout the day to answer your burning business questions. There’ll also be plenty of opportunities to network and start building those all-important business connections at our Skill-Swap Coffee Morning happening 09.00-10.00am.

And that’s not all! We’re running special ‘Introduction to the Business & IP Centre’ sessions throughout the day to help you unlock the value in the UK’s biggest collection of commercial data and find out more about the day-to-day services that will help your turn your business dream into a business reality.

We’re also introducing a new ‘Look and Feel’ feature designed to help you ensure your business image is top-notch. You can get a professional headshot taken, find out how to build a brand that best represents your business image and learn how to take professional photos armed with just a smartphone!
