A new-look advice and support service for entrepreneurs and business owners in Peterborough has been launched at the city’s Central Library.

The Business and Intellectual Property Centre (BIPC) at the library in Broadway, will offer free access to a host of resources for start-up businesses.

It is one of four newly branded BIPC Local hubs with others at Wisbech, Huntingdon and Ely. The Peterborough centre started life in 2019 and has held more than 1,300 interactions with local entrepreneurs through webinars, workshops and one-to-one business and intellectual property advice sessions.

Firzana Shaheen, library services manager, said: “The collaboration with key partners and organisations will offer an essential resource for entrepreneurs and business owners across Peterborough.” Peterborough has a history of impressive business start-up rates which makes the addition of the BIPC Local very exciting for our community.”
