In this full-day workshop you’ll get invaluable insights into using Croydon libraries and the British Library Business & IP Centre’s collection of market intelligence and business resources, including COBRA and Mintel.
Introduction to Business Information
In the first part of the day, learn how to use these resources to help you understand your market, develop a winning business plan and find new customers and clients. Join us and get ahead of the competition!
How do I protect my business idea?
In the second part of the day, your business - whether it is a new product or service, will have some form of intellectual property whether it is in the design, name, logo or brand. This workshop will help you understand what is unique in your business and how you can go about protecting it and making money from it in the future. This could be a trade mark, patent, design or copyright or a combination of all four.
This workshop includes a break for networking and refreshments.
This workshop is part of a two day offering. So do book to attend the follow on fully funded workshop Get ready for business for more business information.
