Business support - advice

​We offer a wide variety of advice, one-to-one sessions and drop-ins for anyone who is considering self employment, starting a new business or requires advice on intellectual property.

Drop-ins, one-to-one sessions and advice

Business basics - drop-ins

One to one drop-in advice sessions take place every Tuesday from 9:30am to 12pm at Northampton Central Library and Wellingborough Library.

Speak to advisors for help and information on taking the first steps to self-employment, and take advantage of our free full access to the library service's computer and internet facilities (including free printouts).

Please be aware that we do not discuss intellectual property at business basics drop-ins. Intellectual property one to ones are bookable because of the need for a confidential meeting space.
