The first of our quarterly Scale-up sessions, our exciting collaboration between Central Library’s Business & IP Centre and Design Manchester took place recently.

Aimed at start ups and small businesses, the first session on 12 November 2020 was the opening event of the DM20 Design Manchester festival. It featured an interview with DM director Kaspar de Graf GM Local Enterprise Partnership co-chair Lou Cordwell OBE and a panel discussion, chaired by Creative Boom editor Katy Cowan, with Jill Adam (Louder Than Words), Debra King (Brighter Sound), Ed Matthews-Gentle (Creative Lancashire), Shirley May (Young Identity) and the artist Venessa Scott.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next session in a couple of months time, details will be available on the BIPC’s Eventbrite page, along with all their other great events and support services for businesses and start ups.
