Business & IP Centre, Newcastle

The Business & IP Centre Newcastle supports entrepreneurs, inventors and small businesses in the North East, from that very first spark of inspiration to successfully launching and developing a business.

At the Centre, you can learn the skills to start and grow your own business, research your market, learn how to protect your ideas (intellectual property) and make money from them, gain confidence and inspiration and meet fellow entrepreneurs.

You’ll find us on the third floor of Newcastle City Library, where our trained staff can help you find the specialist information you need.
