As many of us are working from home now, sometimes we just need a change of scenery for a couple of hours

At the Business & IP Centre (BIPC) Sussex, we offer one-to-one support, a hands-on look at market research, events and expert advice from 15+ business partners for entrepreneurs, start-ups and small businesses, all completely free. But we also offer something that can be just as valuable: workspace. 

Our regional centre located on the top floor of Jubilee Library in Brighton offers a modern space designed for entrepreneurs to network, workshop, focus and flourish. 

We’re not a co-working space but, as part of the library, it’s important to us to provide a free, accessible and comfortable space for you to drop in and get some work done. We think of it more as a space to work on your business – with BIPC staff there to answer any questions that might pop up – rather than a business workspace. 

By blocking out a few hours in your day or week to come and work in our quiet, stylish, and well-resourced space with our staff on hand, you can give yourself the gifts of time and headspace.



Workshop Room
This is a stylish and practical space used for delivering our workshops, training, and networking events. If your business involves, for example, offering training or courses, this space can be hired out for a charge.

Networking Room
Our relaxed lounge style room is for entrepreneurs to come and research their business ideas using our online databases and business books, work on their business plans and network with their peers. This is a free of charge space to use.

Glass Pods
We have two glass meeting pods – a two-person and a six-person pod – that are available to book. Our pods are great for small meetings or taking business calls. It can be a good option to keep in mind, particularly if you work from home or are tired of taking important meetings in noisy coffee shops. 


Networking at the BIPC
By visiting us in Jubilee Library, you’ll also get the opportunity to meet other people in the same boat as you, who are starting or running a business in the local area. It’s been fantastic to see connections being made on a casual weekday, with entrepreneurs exchanging opinions, then ideas and then business cards.

And if you’re looking to start networking, come to one of our free coffee mornings on the fourth Monday of each month, from 10.00 – 11.30am at the BIPC in Jubilee Library, Brighton. Grab a cup of coffee and get to know us and each other! 

We look forward to your visit!
