A NEW business support service is set to launch at Bromsgrove Library this week.

The Business & IP Centre, Worcestershire (BIPC) will officially launch in six libraries across the county on Friday, October 15.

Anyone with an interest in setting up a business, or already running a business, is encouraged to attend the face-to-face event between 10am and 12pm.

Councillor Marc Bayliss, cabinet member for economy and skills said: “Business and IP Centre Worcestershire is a fantastic addition to the range of services provided by Worcestershire libraries.

“It is now easier than ever for anyone thinking of starting a business or wanting to take their business to the next level, to get the help they need. BIPC Worcestershire breaks down barriers for people who have a bright idea for a business but no idea where to start.”

The event will feature the formal opening of the BIPC centre in each library at 11am.
