The Start-ups in London Libraries programme is designed to help aspiring and early-stage entrepreneurs from all walks of life to turn their business idea into a reality, or to elevate their new business to the next stage. Through our network of 10 London borough libraries, we deliver grass roots business support almost directly to your doorstep.

Whether you have always wanted to start a business, or have just taken your first steps into entrepreneurship, we will give you the skills, information and know-how you need to build a viable business.
