BUSINESS SUPPORT FOR ASPIRING AND EARLY STAGE ENTREPRENEURS
FREE WORKSHOPS HOSTED WITHIN YOUR LOCAL ROYAL BOROUGH OF GREENWICH LIBRARIES.
London libraries are transforming the way ideas grow into successful businesses. By partnering with the British Library’s Business and IP Centre, we are developing a community of new and existing business owners, which is free to join and open to everyone.
We offer insight and access to resources – including workshops, events and walk-in consultations – to help you imagine, start or develop your business.
This programme is running in 10 London boroughs and is supported by the European Regional Development Fund, J.P. Morgan and the Arts Council.
Loretta Awuah is leading the delivery of the Start-ups in London Libraries project in Greenwich and is the main point of contact for aspiring and early-stage entrepreneurs to access business support in their local library.
Passionate about social equality and inclusion, Loretta has over 6 years’ experience in developing and managing partnerships with corporate, public and third sector organisations which enable disadvantaged groups to access employment, pro-bono and educational opportunities/experiences. Democratising access to entrepreneurship represents another significant area of interest she hopes to be able to positively impact on, as she builds a start-up community in Greenwich.
