Business & IP Centre Devon


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 idiot with a plan beats a genius without one” – Warren Buffett, American business magnate

Selling can be tough, and never more so than when you are starting up. Whether it’s getting into more conversations with prospective customers, turning those conversations in to business opportunities, or closing those opportunities with control, there’s a lot to consider.

In this session we’ll work on your prospecting plan, identifying the key activities that you need to undertake to ensure success.
