The Business & IP Centre at Exeter and Barnstaple Libraries host a range of events and workshops to suit start-ups, entrepreneurs or businesses looking to learn new skills or research their industry.
Due to Covid-19, many of our events are currently hosted online, via Zoom.
Webinars run weekly on a variety of subjects and are a great way to get an overview of a new topic, or a refresher which can help you to look at your business plan in a new light. Whether you’re just starting out or an established business looking to grow, our webinars are useful, inspiring and informative.
One-to-ones are useful for enquiring about how you can access business information and support, to discuss a problem or question you have in a specific area of your business, or to find out more about Intellectual Property. Find out more information on our 1-to-1s page.

An Intro to Business Modelling – NatWest Business Builder Workshop
October 5, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
With so much change, challenge and confusion just now, it’s easy to feel lost. That’s why we like to use the Business Model Canvas – a single page road map of your business. By having your entire journey in one view, it’s easier to remain focussed and in control by understanding where you are, what your options are and where danger may lie. This view is crucial when managing change or uncertainty.
Join the NatWest Business Builder team as we examine the 9 key areas of a business model and talk through the best practises for your business. You’ll come away with a sense of where changes could be made to your business model to retain customers, improve cashflow and refine objectives.
