startup day British Library Business and IP centre

Running your own business can be a lonely and stressful excursion. Help can seem hard to find (or expensive) but those who know about the British Library’s Business and IP centre can attest that like Geniac, they want to help people build better businesses. It’s been going for 10 years and has helped countless small businesses get off the ground. So as to commemorate the day they are hosting a full free day of workshops designed to help you improve your business skills. And at the very least you can meet like minded people and have your professional headshots taken for that neglected “about” page on your website. Here’s a highlight of a few of the workshops that will be taking place at Startup Day at the British Library:


How the internet can help your business succeed

The BL teams up with Google on this one, demystifying the power of the internet, explaining:

-how to make your website shine on computers and mobile

-develop rich content

-track and manage your presence on Google

This session would be great for anyone who has very little experience with design, SEO and small to non-existent marketing budget.


A guide to funding for your business

Serial entrepreneur Paul Grant has tons of experience working with early stage businesses and investors. Now he spends his time helping small businesses and startups navigate and find funding as the founder of the Funding Game.


7 ways to make your business stand out from the crowd

This intensive marketing workshop with the BL Marketeer in Residence, Alasdair Inglis, will go over the fundamentals and essentials of marketing your small business. Make the most out of blogging, you company’s about page (new headshots!), craft an irresistible offer, and harness the power of customer testimonials.

Events take place on September 27. Visit the British Library website to register you spot.
