Have you heard about the Big Ideas Generators project? It offers personalised one-to-one business information sessions to visitors at libraries across all ten boroughs of Greater Manchester.

Our great range of courses will teach you the practical skills you need to launch and run your startup. You’ll be able to talk through your ideas with one of our information experts. They can help you to identify the information and organisations to help you get started including business plans, protecting your intellectual property, developing your idea, researching the market and online and digital business.
