Business and Intellectual Property Centre Sussex

Sussex Libraries and the British Library’s National Network of Business & IP Centres are transforming the way ideas grow into successful businesses.

The Business and Intellectual Property Centre (BIPC) Sussex with its Regional Centre BIPC Brighton & Hove at Jubilee Library in Brighton and its BIPC Local at Crawley Library, supports entrepreneurs, start-up businesses and small and medium-sized enterprises in Sussex, from that first spark of inspiration to successfully launching and developing a business. 

As well as being a hub for entrepreneurs to network, the BIPC provides free access to over £50K worth of industry, market and company specific research data and analysis, one-to-one expert advice sessions, IP support and a programme of business events to help you imagine, start or grow your business.

For more information, fill in an Ask a Librarian form and the Enquiries Team will be happy to help.
